Fla. lawmaker joins moment of silence for Orlando shootings

Rep. Bill Posey (R-Fla.) joined Democratic colleagues Corrine Brown (Fla.) and Alan Grayson (Fla.) in observing a moment of silence for victims of a deadly shooting at an Orlando office building.

A former worker at the office building opened fire on workers there this afternoon. He is still at large.

Posey tweeted:

Grayson and corrine brown asking for moment of silence on house floor for the vitims in Orlando today - we are all in shock

Grayson and Brown both represent areas of Orlando. Posey's district lies just south of the central Florida city.

The Orlando shooting is the second major act of violence in the country in as many days. Yesterday Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan killed 13 and wounded 30 at Ft. Hood, Texas.
