Not again! Orlando shooting leaves multiple people dead

Reports emerging at the moment reveals that multiple people have died in an attack carried out in Orlando this morning. The shooting occurred in Orlando's industrial area, officials say.

Following reports of multiple gunshots, officers gathered in a parking lot outside a warehouse off Forsyth Road in Orange County, near Full Sail University, Florida, shortly before 9a.m. 

The Orange County Sheriff's Office confirmed this sad incident and said that the scene has been "stabilized". They confirmed there were "multiple fatalities," adding that they are investigating a "tragic incident". The FBI is also on the scene to assist in the investigation.

CNN reports that 5 people have so far died, including the shooter. Police say the shooting appears to be a work-related incident and there is no connection to terrorism. This shooting comes a week before the one-year anniversary of the Pulse nightclub massacre in the same Orlando where 49 people were fatally shot by Omar Mateen, an Islamic extremist.
