Copycat Killer in Orlando? [Updated]
Several media are reporting that eight people have been shot and two killed in an Orlando office building. It happened just before noon at the Gateway Office Center near Lake Ivanhoe. The Orlando Sentinel says that one victim has been killed, and two are in serious condition. Police have taken suspect Jason Rodriguez, 40, into custody.
Bodies were found on the eighth and twelfth floor of the building, which is called Legions Place, the Sentinel reports. People throughout the skyscraper had barricaded themselves into offices.
The shooting follows yesterday's massacre at Texas's Fort Hood, in which 31 people were wounded and twelve killed. You can see live video of the site here.
