Investigation continues into Monday morning’s shooting in an industrial area near Orlando, where multiple fatalities were reported.

Five people, including the shooter, were reported dead, according to CNN. Police believe the shooting is not connected to terrorism and may have been work-related, CNN’s affiliate WFTV reported.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said the situation is now "contained and stable." The industrial area is in a suburban area, northeast of downtown Orlando.

The FBI is assisting the sheriff’s office as officers gather in a parking lot near several warehouses.

According to ABC News, Shelly Adams said her sister called her to say she had been in her workplace when she walked out of a bathroom and saw a person lying on the floor. Her sister, Sheila McIntyre, is OK, but kept saying, "My boss is dead." She "was just hysterically crying."

Law enforcement agencies provided updates on social media.

Orlando was the site of mass shooting last year when a gunman killed 49 people at the Pulse nightclub on June 12, 2016. It was the worst terror attack in the country since 9/11.

"Over the past year, the Orlando community has been challenged like never before," Florida Gov. Rick Scott said in a statement. "I ask all Floridians to pray for the families impacted by this senseless act of violence."

The incident has already opened up the gun debate, just after President Trump had pointed out knives and a truck were used in Saturday’s London terrorist attack.
