Man shoots up business complex lobby, then himself

Largo, Florida -- Largo Police are investigating a shooting incident at the BayView Pavillion business complex in the Clearwater/Largo area this morning.

Authorities say Fred Sumner walked into the lobby area of an office building in the 15000 block of Lightwave Drive and pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and started shooting.

So far, witnesses have told police he didn't aim any shots at anyone, instead, he randomly shot at lobby doors and windows and throughout the lobby.

He then shot himself in the abdomen. He was bayflighted and is still alive at this time. He has been charged with criminal mischief and shooting within an occupied building.

Largo Police say it appears Sumner went to that office complex armed because he was distraught over an alleged affair his wife was having who works in the building. She was not at the complex at the time of the incident.
