A fatal shooting at the U.S. customs and immigration office in Orlando has left one person dead. According to reports, the devastating incident occurred around before 11 am, when the authorities responded to the scene.

The police shared that the gunman in a car drove toward a woman and a man outside the federal agency’s parking lot on Corporate Centre Boulevard. He fired shots at the man, but the woman managed to escape.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. In updates shared by the Orlando Police, the unharmed woman was the suspect’s ex-wife. Neither the gunman nor the victim worked at the immigration office.

The immigration shooting comes two weeks after a teenager was killed in Orlando.

According to eyewitness Rusten Hurd, an immigration attorney, people in the office panicked and ran away from the windows and doors after hearing the gunshot in the parking lot. He recalled to WFTV9:

“There was a desk inside the immigration officer’s office, and we all got down behind it -- probably 20 of us in a small office.”

After the shooting, an officer reportedly spotted the gunman’s vehicle, and after a 15-mile chase, he was arrested near Kissimmee in Osceola Co. Although the motive for the shooting hasn’t been disclosed, authorities believe it is domestic.

In another update shared by the Orlando Police, the suspected gunman was identified as 52-year-old Alberto Rivero-Milian. The late victim was named Alberto Dominguez-Ortiz, also 52-year-old.

Following the shooting, the immigration office was closed on Tuesday and is set to reopen on Wednesday. All missed appointments would be rescheduled, and there happens to be a heavy police presence at the office.

The immigration shooting comes two weeks after a teenager was killed in Orlando. Per the ClickOrlando, 16-year-old Antrevus Cantlow was shot around 11: 45 am and dropped off at an apartment located at Raleigh Street.

Authorities suspect that the shooting took place at the 1000 block of San Domingo Road close to Pine Hills Road. A vigil was held for the late Edgewater High School student days after the incident.
