Multiple Fatalities After Workplace Shooting In Orlando

A shooting at a business headquarters in Orlando, Florida, has left five people dead, including the shooter.

CNN reports that the incident appears to be work-related. It was not a terrorist attack, according to local police.

"OCSO working shooting scene that has stabilized," the Orange County Sheriff's Office tweeted, according to the Orlando Sentinel. "Multiple fatalities. Situation contained. Sheriff will brief as soon as info is accurate."

In a follow-up tweet, the sheriff's office wrote: "Now investigating tragic incident & will soon have accurate information."

More than a dozen police cars arrived at the scene of the shooting around 8:30 a.m. and were still there over an hour later. A deputy was seen inspecting the parking lot with a police dog.

On June 12, 2016, Orlando was the site of the worst terror attack on U.S. soil since 9/11, when a gunman killed 49 people in Pulse nightclub.
