ORLANDO, Fla. — A disgruntled former employee shot and killed multiple people at an Orlando, Florida, workplace Monday morning before killing himself, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said.

Three men and a woman were killed by the shooter, who then shot himself, Demings said. Another man died at Orlando Regional Medical Center.

Seven people survived inside Fiamma Inc., which makes accessories for recreational vehicles, Demings said.

The gunman, 45, was fired from Fiamma in April, Demings said.

He had a minor police record and no association with any subversive or terrorist group, Demings said.

The location is an industrial area in suburban Orlando, northeast of downtown.


Almost a year ago, Orlando was the site of the nation’s worst terror attack since 9/11. On June 12, 2016, a gunman killed 49 people at the Pulse nightclub.
