Jason Rodriguez, gunman in the Orlando Shooting was surrendered three hours after the incident. He was surrendered after the police saw him through the window of his mother’s home.
He opened fire Friday ago in the offices of the engineering firm that fired him two years ago. He brought a handgun to the firm and Jason killed one person and five others had been injured in the Orlando shooting.
Jason Rodriguez, 40, was asked by a reporter outside the police station about why he had done it,
“Because they left me to rot.”
“This is a tragedy, no doubt about it, especially on the heels of the tragedy in Fort Hood that is on our minds,” Demings said. “I’m just glad we don’t have any more fatalities or any more injuries than we currently have.”
The shooting was in the offices of Reynolds Smith & Hill on the eighth floor. Mike Bernos, the company spokesman said that Jason Rodriguez was an entry-level engineer who had been working there a year before the termination in June 2007. He was fired because he can’t keep up with the company standards.
“His performance wasn’t up to our standards, so we terminated him,” Bernos said. There had been no contact between the company and Rodriguez since then.
