An Orlando location of Gerber Collision and Glass is located next door to Fiamma Inc., a manufacturer of RV awnings and the location of the fatal shooting this morning in which five people were gunned down by a previous employee before he took his own life.

“We’re okay …,” a site representative for Gerber Collision told glassBYTEs.com. “But no one can get out or get in. They had to close the road.”
According to news reports, the gunman, whose identity has yet to be released, was a 45-year-old former employee who had been let go in April. Among the casualties were four men and one woman.
The incident comes just one week before the anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting.
A site manager for Gerber Collision was not available to speak with glassBYTEs.com at this time, but we will continue to follow this story as it develops.
