5 die in shooting at Florida bank; suspect arrested
A gunman opened fire inside a Florida bank Wednesday, killing five people before surrendering to a SWAT team, police said.
The shooter called police to report that he had fired shots inside the bank in Sebring, about 80 miles southeast of Tampa. Negotiations failed to persuade the barricaded man to leave the building. The SWAT team then entered the bank, and the gunman eventually gave up, police said.
Authorities identified the suspect as Zephen Xaver, 21, who was arrested at the SunTrust branch, Hoglund said.
