The identities of four victims have been released by police. The victims are Robert Snyder, 69; Brenda Montanez-Crespo, 44; Kevin Clark, 53; and Jeffrey Roberts, 57. The ID of one victim has not been released.
The gunman, who has been identified as John Robert Neumann Jr., was said to have specifically targeted people during the shooting. One of the witnesses told police that Neumann pointed his gun at her and told her to leave.
The shooting took place in multiple locations inside the business.
ORLANDO, FLORIDA — A man, who police say was fired from his job in April, went back to his old employer Monday morning and began shooting. The victims included his old boss, as well as 4 others who have not been identified.
Police have not named the dead gunman, 45, but say he has no ties to terror or subversive groups.
Police responded to the call about 8 a.m. at Fiamma Inc., which makes accessories for recreational vehicles, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said. The business is located in an industrial area northeast of downtown.
Three men and a woman were found dead at the scene, Demings said. Another man died at Orlando Regional Medical Center.
Seven others were inside the business when the shootings took place.
The man responsible has not been identified, but was said to be 45 years old.
Around 8am, police went to the business after receiving a call of shots fired. By the time police arrived, the gunman had taken his own life. He was said to be armed with a knife and handgun.
In 2014, police were called to the same business for a ‘workplace violence’ incident involving the same man responsible for the killings, although no charges were filed.
