Police have identified 36-year-old Bradford Baumet as the gunman who rampaged a salon in Florida, shooting four women, killing three, before driving away and committing suicide.
Baumet reportedly killed his ex-girlfriend, salon manager Marcia Santiago, and several of her coworkers at the Las Dominicanas M & M Salon.
As reported by the Orlando Sentinel:
Both Santiago and the owner of the salon, Eugenia Marte, filed domestic violence injunctions against Baumet in recent weeks.
Santiago was supposed to report to the Orange County Courthouse at 1:30 p.m. Thursday for a hearing in the domestic violence case.
Casselberry police have not publicly identified the four women who were shot at the salon around 11 a.m. The fourth employee was taken to an area hospital, and her condition is unknown.
Police said Baumet left the salon, located in a small strip mall near a Family Dollar store, and then shot himself several miles away at a home on Paradise Lane.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims during this time. What could have driven Baumet to carry out such a heinous act?
