One of those dead has been confirmed to be the shooter. There are seven individuals within the business that have survived the shooting.
The shooting incident was reported around 8 a.m. at an industrial area on North Forsyth Road near Hanging Moss Road, northwest of Colonial Drive and State Road 417 in Orlando. Forsyth Road is closed from University and State Road 50.
When the Orlando Police Department reported to the scene they found 4 deceased males and one deceased female, one being the shooter. A fifth shooting victim was transported to ORMC where he later died.
