CASSELBERRY, Fla. (AP) — Police have identified three of the victims in the central Florida beauty salon shooting, including a manager who filed a restraining order against the gunman.

Casselberry police say 44-year-old Marcia Santiago is in serious condition in the hospital after Thursday’s shooting. Police say Santiago and the gunman, 36-year-old Bradford Baumet, were supposed to appear in court Thursday on the restraining order.

Santiago’s relationship with Baumet is not immediately clear.

Police say Baumet opened fire in the salon in Casselberry, about 15 miles northeast of Orlando, killing three women and wounding Santiago before killing himself at a nearby home.

Police identified two other victims as customer 52-year-old Gladys Cabrera and salon worker 29-year-old Noelia Gonzalez-Brito. Police did not immediately identify the fourth woman who died.
