In Florida on Monday morning, an employee who was fired in April returned to the workplace and went on a killing spree with a semi-automatic gun. 5 people were fatally shot, mostly in the head and more than once. The police are saying that this is most likely a workplace violence related attack and not a terror attack. It is said that the perpetrator, when working in the company, was a “disgruntled employee” and had a “negative relationship” with at least one of the victims.
