    Family and friends gather at the scene of the shooting at Las Dominicanas M&M Salon in Casselberry, Florida on Thursday. A gunman opened fire in a central Florida beauty salon Thursday, killing three women and wounding a fourth before killing himself at a nearby home, police said. The shooting appeared to be part of a domestic dispute.

    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 said 44-year-old Marcia Santiago is in serious condition in the hospital after Thursday's shooting. Police said 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 was not immediately clear.

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

    Two women hid inside a bathroom and one ran outside through a back door, police spokeswoman Sara Brady said.

    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.

    About two dozen mourners gathered near the salon, located in a strip mall, and police taped off the parking lot. Yellow paper covered the salon's windows. A Dominican Republic flag was hung in the storefront along with a neon sign that read: Hair Cut. Color. Perm.

    After the shooting, the gunman went to a friend's home in nearby Winter Park, about seven miles from the salon, and shot himself, said Seminole County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Heather Smith. He did not threaten his friends, but said "he had some problems, problems he could not remedy."
