ORLANDO - Police are investigating a "multiple fatality" incident at a business headquarters in Orlando, Florida, an official at the Orange County Sheriff's Office (OCSO) said, US media reported on Monday (June 5).
Police say there is no connection to terrorism. It appears to be a work-related incident, WFTV says.
"OCSO on shooting scene w/ multiple fatalities. Situation contained, Now investigating tragic incident & will soon have accurate information,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a tweet.
Forsyth Road has been shut down between University and State Road 50, the Orlando Sentinel reported citing the Florida Department of Transportation.
The crime scene is in an industrial park area, and deputies appeared to be focused on one particular building, the report said.
Orange County Sheriff officials have said the situation is contained and stable — meaning there is not an active shooter. Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demmings is expected to make a statement soon and brief the media on what has happened, the Sentinel reported.
Some Orange County Fire and Rescue units were seen leaving the scene, but more than a dozen police vehicles remained, it added.
The FBI joint terrorism task force has an official on the scene of the shooting.
Monday’s shooting comes just a week ahead of the anniversary of the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando in which 49 people were killed by a gunman. It was the deadliest mass shooting in US history.
