In Florida, a U.S. Army veteran killed five people on Monday when he opened fire with a semi-automatic handgun at his former factory. Forty-five-year-old John Robert Neumann Jr. had been fired from the awning manufacturer Fiamma in April. He began his shooting rampage around 8 a.m., shooting his former co-workers multiple times in the head before he killed himself. He did not have a permit for the handgun.
