(Newser) – One person is dead and another five people have been shot after a gunman opened fire in an office complex in downtown Orlando, Fla., reports the Sentinel. Police, who initially reported more victims, are still looking for the suspect, identified as 40-year-old Jason Rodriguez. He is a former employee of a business in the 16-story building, called Legions Place.

"We've got everybody in one office, with the door barricaded with a chest of drawers," one woman told the newspaper. "There are about 20 of us in here. We're scared."
