Two dead in shooting at Green condominium complex, officials say

A gunman who opened fire in a condo complex on the edge of downtown Orlando on Monday has died, authorities said.

A second person was wounded, authorities in Lake Mary said.

The gunman opened fire at the Green Condominiums, which overlooks the Orlando Convention Center, shortly before 11 p.m.

Monday, Lake Mary Police Chief Tom Miller said.

The suspect, identified as a 22-year-old male, was taken to the hospital where he died, Miller said in a statement.

No one else was injured.

Miller said police were investigating whether the suspect had been in the area before.

There were reports of shots fired around 1:45 a.m., Miller said, but police had not confirmed those reports.

The gunman was seen fleeing the scene, Miller added.

It was unclear if the incident was related to the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting, which left 49 people dead and 53 wounded.

The suspect, who authorities said was known to them, is believed to have been living in the building for at least two years, Miller wrote in a blog post.

Lake Mary is about 20 miles south of downtown.

“Our hearts are with the families of the victims and their families,” Miller said on the blog.

“We ask for the public’s continued assistance as we continue to investigate this tragedy.”
