  • The Orange County Sheriff’s Office released recordings of 911 calls Friday made during the June 5, shooting by a disgruntled ex-employee at an Orange County business. During the incident, John Neumann Jr., 45, walked into Fiamma on Forsyth Road at about 8 a.m. and methodically shot and killed five of his former co-workers, deputies said. Neumann was fired by Fiamma in April, officials said. One person who called 911 had been on the phone with her fiancée when the shooting started. “One of the ex-employees came in – who got fired – is shooting up the place right now, as we speak,” she told 911. “There’s at least seven, seven people in there. The one I saw was down. He’s in his chair.” Investigators say the victims -- Robert Snyder, 69, Kevin Lawson, 46, Brenda Montanez-Crespo, 44, Kevin Clark, 53, and Jeff Roberts, 57 – were targeted by Neumann. He had a “negative relationship” with at least one of the victims, the OCSO said. Neumann entered the business armed with a handgun, a large hunting knife and a smaller knife, deputies said. He reloaded at least once during the shooting, investigators said. He spared the life of a temporary employee who was working at the time. “He pointed the gun at me and told me to get out,” she told a 911 dispatcher. After killing the five victims, Neumann died when he turned the gun on himself, deputies said. In addition to the 911 recordings, the Sheriff’s Office has released an incident report filed in connection with the shooting.  Body-camera video was recorded by deputies who responded to Fiamma, but would not be released while the investigation into the shooting was ongoing, officials said.

  • The death penalty will remain in play for Luis Toledo, accused of killing his wife and her two young children in 2013.   During a hearing Friday, Volusia County Circuit Judge Raul Zambrano ruled on two motions made by defense attorneys aimed at preventing the prosecutors from pursuing the death penalty against Toledo.   Toledo's wife, Yessenia Suarez, 28, and her children, Thalia Otto, 9, and Michael Otto, 8, disappeared from their Deltona home in October 2013. They have not been found. Prosecutors say Toledo confessed to killing Suarez but denied killing her children.   Attorneys for Toledo tried to argue that because the law was so broad and arbitrary, anyone charged with first-degree murder could also be given the death penalty.   The state said that it has the power to decide who faces the death penalty and who doesn't, and that a defendant may appeal to a jury or a judge should the defense dislike an initial decision at trial.   Friday's rulings mean Toledo could face the death penalty if he is found guilty. His trial is scheduled to begin Oct. 2.
  • Orlando Police arrested a TSA agent working at Orlando International Airport for stealing money from a passenger. Alexander Johnson, 22, was arrested Thursday night and later let go by the TSA. Passenger Kathleen Duddleston was stopped for additional screening at the TSA checkpoint.  Police say she complained to TSA security officer Michelle Metz that she couldn’t see her luggage while getting patted down, so Metz moved her closer. Duddleston complained again that she couldn’t see her bag, and Johnson moved slightly. After the pat down, Duddleston reached for her bag and couldn’t find her money.  Police said she noticed a bulge in Johnson’s left front shirt pocket.  She asked him if that was her money, and he said he got the money from the bank. The woman complained to Metz that she believed Johnson stole her money.  Metz contacted her supervisor, and video surveillance showed Johnson reaching into her bag and taking the money. He’s been charged with third-degree grand theft. TSA said in a statement to Channel 9 Eyewitness News: “TSA has a zero tolerance for misconduct in the workplace.  “The TSA immediately reported the allegation to OPD and we aggressively investigated the incident with our law enforcement partner. TSA officers represent a professional and honorable workforce that is trained to treat passengers and their personal belongings with care and respect. No exceptions will be tolerated. We immediately ended the federal career of this individual. ” Johnson posted bail and is out of the Orange County Jail.
  • Take your Dog to Work Day has a more serious tone than it sounds, in that it was designed to show co-workers without dogs what a human-animal bond looks like and to encourage them to visit a shelter and adopt one of their own. The event was started in 1999 by Pet Sitters International. Sadly, you won’t be able to visit the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando for a couple of weeks, because of small outbreak of dog flu. The canines there are being monitored and treated and the flu should pass quickly, according to its executive director. “We have two confirmed cases. It’s highly contagious but highly treatable with antibiotics,” said Steve Bardy. Humans cannot get dog flu, but a good idea is to wash your hands after petting an animal to keep it from spreading among dogs, he said.
