The Tribune (SLO) - - Insight -

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.
