His last arrest was in 2010 for drug possession, leaving the scene of an accident and driving on a suspended license.
Sheriff's deputies were preparing to search Neumann's mobile home in Maitland, Florida, for clues to his motive.
The attack shows why people need to alert authorities whenever they learn of anything that could lead to violence, Banks said.

"I will remain in contact with the Orlando law enforcement community throughout the day as more information is made available", Scott said. Mr Demings said the incident was being treated as a "workplace violence incident" and did not appear to have any links to terror.
Neumann was armed with a handgun, a large hunting knife and possibly some smaller knives when he entered the business.
"My experience tells me that this individual made deliberate thought to do what he did today".

Demings said Neumann Jr. had been fired back in April and had a "negative relationship" with one of the victims.
The Florida Democrat says the city "is still healing from the Pulse massacre" and "has seen too much violence". Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims during this hard time. "I can't imagine who did this", Bluewater said of the Fiamma employees. He paused at least once to reload.
A woman who was in the awnings manufacturers business that is the site of a multiple shooting ran out of the building, saying the gunman told her to leave.

She used the phone of a tile business across the street to call 911, said Yamaris Gomez, the tile store's owner, The St. Loius Post-Dispatch reported.
Demings said they're still trying to figure out why Neumann, who had been fired from the Fiamma factory in April, chose to return Monday and kill his former co-workers before killing himself. Authorities believe that Neumann had acted alone and had fired at his former co-workers on account of his being a disgruntled employee.
On its officials Twitter account Monday morning, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said the "situation" has been contained.
Searching for a motive, deputies cordoned off a trailer park in Maitland, where Neumann lived alone in a mobile home on a busy road next to a funeral home, a used auto lot and a dog-grooming business.
Monday's shooting at the company that makes awnings for recreational vehicles happened in Orange County near Orlando.
Neumann, a veteran who was honorably discharged from the U.S. Army in 1999, had a "troubled" home life when he was a child, childhood friend Jayson Savage said.
