SEBRING, Fla. — The man Florida authorities said opened fire at a SunTrust Bank in Sebring, Florida, on Wednesday, killing at least five people, was arrested at the scene and taken into custody.
He was identified as 21-year-old Zephen Xaver. So far there’s little information about him or a motive for the attack.

Here’s what we know so far about the suspect:
Xaver lives in Sebring, which is about 80 miles south of Orlando.
"He had no discipline while employed with the department," Florida Corrections Department spokesman Patrick Manderfield said, the Post reported.
He moved to Florida from Plymouth, Indiana, according to news reports, but it’s unclear exactly when he moved to Sebring.
Xaver kept a low profile on social media. A Facebook page he apparently started while living in Indiana showed he had nine friends and a single photo of himself. The page also had just two posts, both from 2016, and one of them was an image of the grim reaper. That page has since been taken down.
When he was taken into custody, he appeared to be wearing a T-shirt that depicted the Four Housemen of the Apocalypse.
It’s unclear what kinds of guns Xaver allegedly used in the shooting or how he got them.
