Posted on Nov 6, 2009
On Friday, Jason Rodriguez, a 40-year-old engineer who had been fired from an Orlando, Fla., construction firm two years ago, went back to his former office and opened fire, killing at least one person and wounding at least five others before fleeing to his mother’s house, where he was tracked down and arrested. —KA
The Orlando Sentinel:
After the arrest, the suspect was greeted by reporters just outside the police department’s doors.
“Why did you do it?” one television reporter asked.
“Because they left me to rot,” Rodriguez said.
He was asked if he was angry at his employer.
“No. I’m angry,” he said.
Mayor Buddy Dyer confirmed that the victims were all employees of Reynolds, Smith & Hill.
