    "Five people, including the shooter, are dead after a shooting at an Orlando, Florida business headquarters, CNN affiliate WFTV reports.

    Police say there is no connection to terrorism. It appears to be a work-related incident, WFTV says.

    It's a sad statment when I see headlines such as this and have to look to see if it's a new thread or not.

    Same thing happened with the London thread. I thought it was old news at first.

    Per your link

    A sister of one of the employees told reporters gathered at the scene that her relative was using the bathroom when she heard a "loud bang."

    .....that when she exited the bathroom, she saw a deceased victim on the ground.

    Such a horrible thing to read. These people reported to work like any other day and then, all of a sudden, they are murdered by some disgruntled co-worker. I just don't understand how our society has come to this. Ten years ago I never would have believed or expected these incidents to become the norm and almost an everyday occurrence.

    Dear Bird of Paradise,

    That was exactly my initial reaction.

    Sending prayers of strength, comfort and love to the families who lost their loved ones in this senseless tragedy.

    Saddens my heart so much.

    ITA! Blondie!

    It seems more and more there are many in our society who refuse to take accountability and blame for their own actions/wrongdoing. The sore losers must harm totally innocent others instead of looking at themselves. Why we have become a society with so many in it that must blame someone else for everything and I truly don't know how we got here.

    At one time Americans were strong enough to look inwardly, and take full responsibility for their own actions/mistakes/bad choices even if it was their family members including their own children if they had erred.

    But now it seems blame is placed anywhere else other than were it should be placed. Why we have so many who constantly seem to never want to admit their own wrongdoings or that of their children etc is puzzling to me. The saying 'not my child or children' has become so commonplace.

    I have no doubt this sore loser was another who acted out violently because they just couldn't accept they were most likely the main one at fault for all of their perceived problems.

    I certainly hope we see a drastic change in attitude where more and more people will once again return to admitting their own faults/mistakes or those in their own family, while learning from their mistakes to make them even stronger instead of lashing out so violently against others.

    Prayers for all of the family members who have had their lives changed forever by losing their precious family members who were only going about their workday to fulfill their job duties where they were employed. How very tragic and sad.

    It's SO SAD. I believe a acts like this are terrorism, too. Absolutely. And I just don't understand why this continues to happen. I just know it's going to be for some pathetic reason (not that any reason is justified), like they were fired or some office love triangle or something.

    Orlando Shooting: 5 Killed at RV Business by Angry Ex-Employee

    by Kalhan Rosenblatt

    A disgruntled former employee at an Orlando, Florida RV accessory business fatally shot five workers Monday morning before turning the gun on himself, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

    The shooting was first reported around 8 a.m. at the headquarters for Fiamma, Inc. Once deputies arrived on scene, they found three men and one woman already dead, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said during a press conference.

    A fifth man was transported to a nearby hospital where he died, according to Demings.
    The 45-year-old suspect, who was fired from Fiamma Inc. in April, shot himself, Demings said. The suspect's name was not released...
