The unidentified shooter was not charged when he was accused of battering the co-worker in June 2014, the sheriff said.

The sheriff's office calls the situation "contained and stable", WFTV says.

Later in the day, the sheriff identified the shooter as 45-year-old John Robert Neumann Jr., and said Neumann was "certainly singling out the individuals he shot" and had a "negative relationship" with at least one of them, The Associated Press reports.

Shelley Adams's sister Sheila McIntrye works for the company and was in the toilet when shots rang out. She used the phone of a tile business across the street to call 911, said Yamaris Gomez, the tile store's owner.

Five people have been killed in a shooting at a workplace in Orlando, Florida.

Neumann lived alone and had no family in the area, Demings said.

Orlando was the site of a mass shooting by a gunman who killed 49 people in an attack at a gay nightclub in June 2016.

"Ann and I are praying for the families who lost loved ones today", Scott said.

The shooting appeared to take place near the Gerber Collission and Glass Center, in an industrial area on North Forsyth Road near Hanging Moss Road.

In his statement Monday, Scott says the Orlando community has been challenged like never before. She kept repeating "My boss is dead".

Fiamma calls itself one of the largest manufacturers of awnings for camper vans, motor coaches and sport utility vehicles.

This is the second major shooting in the city in just under a year.

There were no further details. The victim of that incident was not among the dead Monday, Demings said.
