Company 'heartbroken' after workplace shooting near Orlando kills five


Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings and other authorities at the scene of a shooting at Fiamma Inc., Orlando, Florida.

One of the five victims fatally shot by a disgruntled former co-worker at an Orlando awning company Monday was fearful the suspect might seek revenge for being fired, reports CBS affiliate WKMG.

"In terms of his total motive for shooting the specific individuals involved, we have information that at least one of them he had a negative relationship with, but he was certainly singling out the individuals that he shot", Demings said.

Neumann, who had no known family and was living alone at the time of the attack, was an ex-soldier who had been honorably discharged from the US Army in 1999.

Authorities confer near the scene of a shooting where they said there were multiple fatalities in an industrial area near Orlando, Fla., Monday, June 5, 2017.

Court documents revealed a fellow Fiamma employee, who will remain unidentified in this report, attempted to file an injunction against Neumann for alleged assault.

U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson noted that next Monday will mark a year since the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history at a gay nightclub in Orlando.

Police were called at around 8 a woman who ran from the awning business, saying the gunman had told her to leave.

Reportedly, he was sacked in April of this year. Clark began working there several months before that, after jobs in insurance and at an office supply company, Saltman said. "In these dark hours we ask for thoughts and prayers for all the victims of this tragedy and their families".

Eight witness that survived the attack were also inside the business.
