ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Police are searching for a gunman who
injured at least eight people at a downtown Orlando, Fla., office

People are streaming out of the building and some say they have
barricaded themselves inside their offices.

Orange County Sheriff's Spokesman Jim Solomons says his
department is backing up Orlando police and they're still looking
for an armed man wearing a light blue polo shirt and jeans.

Orlando Police Sgt. Barbara Jones confirms there has been a
shooting at a high-rise and multiple people have been hurt but she
can't say how many. She says there is only one shooter.

The Orlando Fire Department tells WESH-TV that at least eight
people are injured. Interstate 4 is closed in both directions
through downtown and a nearby school is locked down.
