Police in the US state of Florida said Monday there have been "multiple fatalities" in a shooting in a business headquarters in Orlando, Orange County.

The shooting happened early on Monday morning in the east of the city, according to the Orlando Sentinel newspaper.

Orange County Sheriff's Office tweeted that the scene of the shooting had been "stabilized." 

The sheriff's presser has been rescheduled several times so far.

Agents from the US federal law enforcement organization, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), will assist the investigation into the shooting in Orlando, Florida, the bureau announced on Monday.

"Special agents from ATF Orlando Field Offices are on scene at Orlando shooting incident to assist our partners," the organization said in a Twitter message.

Update: the sheriff revealed that four people were found dead at the scene. One victim died in hospital later.

The identity of the shooter has not been revealed yet, but the sheriff said that it would be revealed in a later briefing.

The sheriff said that a connection with terrorism has not been established.

The shooter was armed with a gun and a knife.

The reports come just a week from the first anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting in the city, in which 49 people were killed, making it the deadliest mass shooting in US history.
