The suspect in the shooting in Orlando last week that left one dead and six injured had a checkered financial past—including unemployment and a recent bankruptcy filing.
In 2007, suspect Jason Rodriguez was fired from engineering firm Reynolds, Smith & Hills, the location of the shooting, according to The New York Times. According to Rodriguez's public defender, he believed his former employers were blocking his attempts to receive unemployment benefits.
Rodriguez filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy in May, 2009, listing assets of $4,675, mostly from an unreliable 2002 Nissan XTerra, and debts at $89,873.31, including child support, back taxes and student loans.
At the time of his bankruptcy filing, Rodriguez was working at Subway as a "sandwich artist", but recently quit the position due to shortage of hours, according to CNN.
