Five people, including a gunman, were killed in a workplace shooting on Monday morning in Orlando, Florida, local media have reported.

Orlando police said the incident is likely work-related and not a terrorist attack.

Police and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) officers swiftly arrived at the scene of the shooting and later announced that the situation had been stabilized.

The shooting took place at around 8:00 a.m. in a business on Forsyth Road in an industrial area of the Florida city.

Orlando police said that they have begun investigating the incident with the assistance of the FBI.

Nearly one year ago, one of the worst terror attacks in American history occurred in Orlando when a gunman killed 49 people at a nightclub in the city.
