Orlando is once again the setting for tragedy after a mass shooting at an industrial park Monday morning.

Five employees of Fiamma, a company that manufactures awnings and other supplies for RVs, were shot and killed by what authorities are saying was a disgruntled employee who was fired in April.

Fiamma only employs a dozen people; the seven survivors were reportedly unharmed. Sheriff Jerry Demings credits the quick reaction time of the officers involved with the rescue of the remaining employees.

According to eyewitnesses, a woman from the company ran out across the street and called the police, saying the gunman told her to leave. Officers arrived just two minutes later.

That's when the shooter turned the gun on himself.

The shooting comes just a week before the anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. Once again, our hearts go out to the people of Orlando.

Orlando Shooter's Wife Arrested For Connection To Mass Murder!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersR.I.P.Busted!Sad SadViolenceViral: NewsLGBT

America experienced its worst mass shooting in history when a gunman murdered 49 people at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida in June of 2016. Unfortunately, the wheels of justice can move very slowly.

That's because SEVEN MONTHS after Omar Mateen was shot dead after murdering nearly 50 LGBT people and allies, the FBI finally took a huge step in the case on Monday… by arresting his wife, Noor Mateen!

Noor had been a suspect in the case from the very start when police began believing she was lying about her familiarity with her husband's plans — she drove him to the nightclub multiple times before the attack and admitted to helping him purchase ammo, though she said she did not know his intentions.

According to reports, the 29-year-old security guard's wife was taken into custody outside of her San Francisco home early Monday morning — although, it's currently unclear exactly what charges she's being held on.

Multiple sources suggest it has something to do with obstruction of justice.

We'll continue to update you as the investigation unfolds… but we're just glad the victims' families and friends are finally going to get more answers.

Vanderpump Rules Gets Extra Real With An Episode All About The Orlando Pulse Nightclub Shooting

no title

We can't believe it's already been six months…

It's become an annual tradition for one episode every season of Vanderpump Rules to be all about West Hollywood's iconic pride parade — and Season 5 is no different.

Unfortunately, as you're surely aware, June 2016's festivities were overshadowed by the massacre at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando where 49 of our brothers and sisters were shot to death in the worst mass shooting in American history.

Video: 83% Of Bravo Viewers Say Tom & Katie Won't Last…

However, the show must go on… which explains why Bravo cameras were on when Tom Sandoval, Stassi Schroeder, Tom Schwartz, and Katie Maloney first started coming to terms with the tragedy during Monday night's all-new episode.

In fact, Sandoval even proved he was the perfect LGBT ally by not making the 49 murders somehow about the straight SUR staff, but by pointing out the oppression our community faces on the daily instead.

Although, for a show set in the gay capital of El Lay, we're surprised Lisa Vanderpump hasn't cast an openly queer castmate yet… but at least she's talking about the shooting at all, which is more than we can say for our President-elect and his cabinet of bigots.

Ch-ch-check out the highlight of Monday night's #PUMPRules (below)!!!

Pulse Nightclub Will Forever Be An LGBT Memorial After Orlando Buys It For $2.25 Million!

no title

This is the happiest news on earth!

As you surely remember, the LGBT community lost 49 of its members when a gunman opened fire on Pulse Nightclub back in June — marking the worst mass murder in modern American history.

Unfortunately, Donald Trump's surprise ascension to the White House on Tuesday was just another setback for queer Americans… but we're happy to say there's still some good in the world.

That's because it was also announced on Tuesday that the city of Orlando is planning on buying Pulse and turning it into a permanent LGBT and Latinx memorial!

Mayor Buddy Dyer revealed the Florida city's $2.25 million plan via video earlier this week, saying:

Chris was in Tampa celebrating the big day when he suddenly passed away. The 34-year-old's friends found him unconscious and unresponsive, and called the cops to the bash.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is waiting for test results before determining the massacre survivor's cause of death, saying in a statement:

"Preliminary findings showed no physical signs of homicidal violence. The final conclusion of the official cause of death is pending additional forensics and toxicology examination by the Medical Examiner's Office."

The Florida resident's boyfriend, Cord Cedeno, started a GoFundMe page to raise money for his late love's funeral.
