The five victims and gunman in Monday's workplace shooting rampage in Orlando, Florida have been identified.
Sheriff Jerry Demings said that John Robert Neumann Jr., 45, was the gunman, according to ABC affiliate WFTV. Florida Today described him as a disgruntled, fired employee, armed with a semiautomatic handgun and a hunting knife. He was fired in April and was having a really tough time with it, his neighbor told the Orlando Sentinel.
“He didn’t say why he was fired, but would say ‘It was all my fault. It was all my fault,’” the neighbor said in the report.
Neumann fatally shot five people before killing himself at his former workplace, Fiamma Inc., a manufacturer of recreational-vehicle awnings located in an industrial park. The victims are Robert Snyder, 69, Kevin Lawson, 46, Brenda Montanez-Crespo, 44, Kevin Clark, 53, and Jeffrey Roberts, 57. Details have emerged about some of the victims:

Relatives said he hosted a graduation party Sunday night for his 18-year-old, according to WFTV. He also leaves behind a 14-year-old daughter. According to the report, Clark became a single parent after his wife died suddenly seven years ago. His family said a temporary employment agency placed Clark at Fiamma, where he recently became a permanent employee. He also worked as an Uber driver to support his children. A GoFundMe has been started for his family.
Her family released a statement to WFTV that said, "Brenda was a loving mother, grandmother and beloved sister who was cherished by all of her family, friends and everyone that knew her. She was a hardworking single mother and she will be missed greatly."
He was married to his wife, Tammy, for 37 years. His family told WFTV that he was a wonderful father and amazing grandfather. They also said he was a good manager who treated his co-workers with dignity and respect.
