Police say 40-year-old Jason Rodriguez was arrested at his mother's home after he opened fire in a downtown Orlando office building.
Officials say Rodriguez entered the high rise building where he was fired two years ago. An eye witness said she and other employees huddled in a corner until police arrived.
Ambulances converged on the scene. Emergency responders began a floor-by-floor search for the gunman and the victims.
A nearby elementary school and a high school were placed on lock down, with police officers carrying high-powered rifles surrounding the buildings.
Police are still trying to determine a motive for the shooting. Reports indicate Rodriguez may have recently filed for bankruptcy.
