Former Employee Opens Fire at Orlando Office Tower

Yahoo! News is reporting that a man has opened fire on a crowd of people in an Orlando office tower. At this time he is still on the loose. This comes on the heels of yesterday's tragic shooting at Fort Hood, Texas.

From Yahoo:

Orlando Fire Department District Chief Michael Droege said an unknown number of people were still in the building and could be injured. He said the SWAT team was still trying to pull people out.

"The building is not secure now," he said. "It's still unfolding."

Orlando police spokeswoman Barbara Jones identified the gunman as Jason Rodriguez, 40, and said he might be in a 2002 silver Nissan SUV with license plate D119UX. She said he used to work at the building.

"I would consider him armed and dangerous," Jones said. She said multiple people were hurt but she could not say how many. She said five people were taken to the hospital and another had chest pains but did not go to the hospital.

This is terrible.

Asian news also reports another gunman story in Japan. For some odd, reason three of these stories have developed over the last 24 hours.
