Multiple fatalities in Florida workplace shooting

A man fired from his warehouse job in April returned to his old workplace near Orlando on Monday and fatally shot five people before killing himself, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said.

The unidentified assailant arrived at the company that makes accessories for recreational vehicles and campers at about 8 a.m. EDT armed with a handgun and a knife, Demings said.

Almost a year ago, on June 12, 2016, 49 people were killed at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
