Children must have a right to a quality education to acquire the skills and knowledge needed to realize their full potential. We believe that this is every child’s right, regardless of gender, ethnicity, social class, income, if they live in conflict zones, or if they’ve been displaced by disaster.
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.
