1 dead, another wounded in Florida shooting spree

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man is accused of killing his girlfriend, shooting his boss and then firing at deputies before being captured following a seven-hour standoff.

Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said 50-year-old Manuel Feliciano was captured early Saturday. Demings said Feliciano may have taken drugs before his arrest by SWAT team members.

Demings said Feliciano fatally shot his 45-year-old girlfriend at a home Friday evening in front of her two children. Her name hasn’t been released.

An hour later, Feliciano allegedly shot his 34-year-old boss who had fired him earlier Friday. The man is hospitalized in critical condition. His name has also not been released.

Demings said Feliciano barricaded himself in a house and fired at deputies. None were hit.

Feliciano was taken to the hospital. No charges have been announced.
