4 dead in central Fla. beauty salon shooting
By The Associated Press
CASSELBERRY, Fla. (AP) -- A gunman opened fire in a central Florida beauty salon Thursday, killing three women and wounding a fourth before leaving the business and killing himself, police said.
The gunman entered Las Dominicanas M & M Salon in Casselberry shortly after 11 a.m., police spokeswoman Sara Brady said. Two women escaped the salon.
Police have not identified the victims or the gunman. Brady said the shooting appears to be part of a domestic dispute.
The phone rang unanswered at the salon. A video posted on the salon's website has a woman explaining in Spanish the services offered at the salon for men and women.
Brady said the wounded woman was being treated at an Orlando hospital. Her condition was not immediately released.
A witness told the Orlando Sentinel (http://thesent.nl/WsxRBn ) he heard gunshots before seeing the gunman take off.
"We saw the guy with the gun in his hand ... coming this way ... on foot with the gun in his hand," said Juan Diaz, who was at a nearby store at the time of the shooting. He said he went into the salon once the gunman left and saw "a bunch of dead bodies."
Casselberry is about 15 miles northeast of Orlando.
