    At least 5 dead in shooting at Florida bank, suspect in custody: Police

    "At least five people were killed when a gunman opened fire in a SunTrust Bank in Sebring, Florida, on Wednesday, police said.

    The 21-year-old suspect, Zephen Xaver, barricaded himself inside before later surrendering to authorities, police said.

    The suspect had contacted authorities and told them that he fired shots inside the bank, sending officers rushing to the scene around 12:30 p.m., the Sebring Police Department said.

    Negotiations to get the barricaded suspect to leave weren't successful, police said, so a SWAT team was sent in. Negotiations then continued, police said, and the "suspect eventually surrendered."

    Five people are shot dead during 'hostage situation' after a gunman opened fire inside bank | Daily Mail Online

    Five people were shot dead after a 21-year-old gunman opened fire inside a Florida bank Wednesday afternoon.

    Officers responded to the SunTrust Bank branch located at 1901 US 27 South around 12.36pm after a suspect, identified as Zephen Xaver, called 911 and reported that he had fired shots inside the bank, according to the Sebring Police Department.

    After a standoff with officers and SWAT agents, Xaver eventually surrendered to authorities.

    Video shows him being perp-walked in handcuffs through the parking lot to a police vehicle.

    Initial reports said multiple people had been injured during the shooting, but authorities later confirmed during a press conference that at least five people had been 'senselessly murdered'.

    He "liked" far right-wingers Alex Jones and Milo Yianniopoulos, for example. <modsnipped>

    <modsnipped> ZX being a fan of the far-right in general seems accurate.

    Disappointed, angry, sad for the victims and loved ones, embarrassed that our country has another mass shooting....but not particularly surprised. :(
