The shooting happened around 9:22 a.m. inside the Comerica Bank building at 1675 North Military Trail, in the CBIZ MHM accounting and auditing tax consulting financial services office on the 5th floor.

Police arrived at 9:24 and secured the building. "Our units formed up as they have been trained. And, made entry into the building. And then went through and secured every portion of the building to include the parking area. This appears to be a domestic situation in which the male shot the victim and then killed himself," Boca Raton Police Chief Dan Alexander said.

Scott Edgerton recently retired after 13 years of serving as the CEO of the Center for Group Counseling in Boca Raton.
