Gunman kills 3, self in Florida salon shooting

CASSELBERRY, Fla. — A gunman opened fire in a central Florida beauty salon Thursday, killing three women and wounding a fourth before killing himself at a nearby home, police said. The shooting appeared to be part of a domestic dispute.

The gunman, identified by police as Bradford Baumet, was served with a domestic violence injunction Oct. 9 and scheduled to be in Orange County court Thursday for a hearing with the salon’s manager, Marcia Santiago, who took out the restraining order. Their relationship was not immediately clear.

About two hours before the hearing was to start, Baumet, 36, entered Las Dominicanas M & M Salon in Casselberry and started shooting, police spokeswoman Sara Brady said. Two women hid inside a bathroom and one ran outside through a back door. The wounded woman was being treated at a hospital. Her condition was not released.

Police have not identified the victims, and it was not clear whether Santiago was at the salon.

The phone rang unanswered at the salon. Calls to Santiago and the salon’s owner also went unanswered.

About two dozen mourners gathered near the salon, located in a strip mall, and police taped off the parking lot. Yellow paper covered the salon’s windows.

After the shooting, the gunman went to a friend’s home in nearby Winter Park and shot himself, said a Seminole County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman, Heather Smith. She added he told his friends ‘‘he had some problems, problems he could not remedy.’’
