    • Multiple people are dead after a shooting at an Orlando, Florida business at 8am this morning.

      The Orange County Sheriff's Office said there had been 'multiple fatalities' incident, and that the situation has been 'stabilized'.

      Officials have not given an exact number of fatalities, but WFTV reports that five people were killed - including the gunman.

      Sources told WKMG that the shooter was a disgruntled employee at Fiamma, an Italian-owned business that makes RV awnings.

      The FBI joint terrorism task force also has an official on the scene.

      Sources told WKMG that the shooting was not related to terrorism.

      Todays' shooting comes exactly a week before the one-year anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando.

    I read that it was a disgruntled worker and he shot 5 people then himself. Don't know the details of why he was disgruntled...maybe fired?
    It does say he was an ex employee...

    Too many crazy unstable people .....you never know when someone around you decides to kill themselves and a few others too. :(

    Day before Memorial Day last week....my oldest daughters BF friend of 21 years husbad commited suicide. He text his estranged wife of 20 plus years horrible vile things right up to the moment he pulled the trigger in a public park. Just a few days before he tried to convince her to bring the kids over...they are grown. ...her gut said No. Had she taken them 4 more would have died. My daughter feels guilt because shes glad he is gone but can not tell her friend how she feels...I say good ridence!

    OMG @Gloria Mitchell , what a tragedy, but thank god his estranged wife had the foresight not to take the kids over..I suspect your suspicion is right and there may have been more fatalities..
