WWE just issued the following statement regarding the shooting at the WWE Performance Center on Monday:
“Unfortunately a deranged individual with no WWE affiliation, who had a court order prohibiting him from being on WWE property, was involved in an incident with an Orange County Sherriff’s deputy in the parking lot of the WWE Performance Center. We defer to the Orange County Sherriff’s department for further comment and information.”
WESH 2 Newsfirst broke the story, as medics were called to 5055 Forsyth Commerce Road — the address of WWE’s facility — around 1:45 PM ET. One gunshot victim was transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center after deputies responded to a trespassing call. A news conference to address the media is scheduled for later this afternoon.
