Orlando shooter and victims identified


Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings has released the identity of the lone gunman involved in a deadly shooting at an Orlando business Monday morning, along with the identities of the five people he brutually murdered.

The shooter was John Robert Neumann Jr, a digruntled former employee who was fired in April from Fiamma, Inc., a business in Orlando that makes awnings for campers and recreational vehicles.

Neumann, an Army veteran who was honorably discharged in 1999, had worked at the business for “several years”, and also allegedly “battered” another employee at the same business in a 2014 incident, but no charges were file against him at that time.

He did have a criminal history of several “minor” charges and traffic violations, including a DUI and misdemeanor battery, and had been arrested several times since 1995.

Officials have stated the shooting is not believed to be a terrorist incident.

Neumann barged into the business Monday morning with a handgun and a knife, and shot five people, most of them in the head, and some were shot multiple times.

The sheriff said 8 witnesses survived the attack, including one woman who was told by the shooter to leave.

Just as police arrived, the shooter turned the gun on himself and took his own life.

The five victims, four men and one woman, have been identified as follows:

  • Robert Snyder, 69
  • Brenda Montanez-Crespo, 44
  • Kevin Clark, 53
  • Jeffrey Roberts, 57
  • Kevin Lawson, 46.
