5 Killed by A Former Employee at an Orlando Business Workplace
Florida: A disgruntled former employee who was fired in April shot and killed five workers at RV accessory business in Orlando, Florida, on Monday morning at around 8 am, according to the Orange County police.
Four workers were dead on the spot, and the fifth worker died at the hospital, said Jerry Demings, Orange County Sheriff in the press conference.
Neumann Jr., 45, entered his former workplace, Fiamma Inc. headquarters, with a semi-automatic gun, a large hunting knife and may be a couple of small knives, the police said. He selectively killed five workers before pointing gun and killing himself just before the deputies entered the scene, Demings said.
It appears that Neumann had a “negative relationship” with at least one victim, Demings said. “He was certainly singling out individuals that he shot.”
The victims were shot on the head and some of them were shot multiple times.
There were approximately 12 workers at the time Neumann entered the building. Eight of them witnessed the killings.
The victims were identified as Robert Snyder, 69; Brenda-Montanez-Crespo, 44; Kevin Clark, 53; Jeffrey Roberts, 57; and Kevin Lawson, 46.
Neumann is a former army veteran who was discharged in 1999, Demings said. He had no family in the area and lived alone, he said.
