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.
