Is there something in the water, is this a coincidence…or what? Yet another mass shooting…this time in Florida:
One person was killed and at least seven others were wounded in a shooting incident inside a downtown Orlando high-rise building Friday morning, authorities said.
Quoting emergency dispatchers, NBC station WESH-TV of Orlando reported that the incident began about 11:30 a.m. ET on the fourth floor of the Gateway Center at 1000 Legion Place near Lake Ivanhoe.
All patients were taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center. At least four of the eight patients were reported to be seriously wounded.
