A man who had been fired in April from his job at a Florida company opened fire Monday at the Orlando-area business, killing five people before taking his own life, authorities said.

Four people were killed at the scene, while a fifth died at the hospital, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings told reporters.

Demings said the incident was being treated as a "workplace violence incident" and did not appear to have any links to terror.
