Sources told News 6 that there is no terror link to the shooting.

Authorities confer, Monday, June 5, 2017, near Orlando, Fla.

Neumann, 45, who was discharged from the Army in 1999, killed himself before deputies approached.

A lone gunman appeared to single out his victims in the Orlando awning factory where he killed five people today.

In June 2014, authorities responded to Fiamma when the suspect was involved in another workplace violence incident, in which he allegedly battered another employee, Demings said. At that time, the then-unidentified gunman had reportedly barged into the premises, shooting and killing five people before turning the gun on himself.

"I will remain in contact with the Orlando law enforcement community throughout the day as more information is made available", his statement said. The Orange County Sheriff's Office said on its official Twitter account that the situation has been contained.

The shooting was reported about 8 a.m. Monday. A loving husband who "would give the shirt off his back" for anyone in need.

Monday's deadly workplace shooting in Orange County is the first mass work-related shooting in Florida in the last four years.

The website described Roberts as "a devoted husband, father and grandfather". "He had a plan of action", said the sheriff, who wouldn't say why Neumann was sacked in April. "The individual shot former co- workers", he said.

When Todd Bluewater arrived at the company for work Monday morning, he found his business surrounded by sheriff's deputies and blocked off.

Neumann had some encounters with authorities, including a 2014 incident at Fiamma Inc. where the shooting took place, Demings said in a news conference. A temporary injunction was granted but never served because servers couldn't find Neumann's address.
