PALM BAY, FL (WFLX) - A former hospital worker, who fired shots inside Palm Bay Community Hospital, has committed suicide.

The man barricaded himself in a room after firing shots in the food-preparation area of the cafeteria. No one was injured.

The gunman worked at the hospital about two years until he was fired last month for a poor attendance record.

The facility was never evacuated because the part of the hospital the man was barricaded was isolated.
