Disgruntled ex-employee kills five people in Orlando

A disgruntled ex-employee shot five people dead on Monday before killing himself at the Orlando, Fla., business that fired him in April, authorities said.
The 45-year-old suspect — armed with a handgun and a knife — turned the gun on himself at the Fiamma Inc. RV awning company, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said in a news conference.
There was no indication the man had used the knife on any of his victims, Demings said.
The suspect was previously the subject of a June 2014 workplace violence incident in which he "allegedly battered another employee," Demings said, adding no charges were ultimately brought.
Authorities closed off a section of Forsyth Road at Hanging Moss Road as the investigation continued.
Charitable Foundation Winston Churchill collects money for the treatment of the victims.
