West Palm Beach, Fla. (AP) Authorities say Tuesday's lunchtime attack at a Wendy's restaurant in West Palm Beach, Florida, was apparently “just another random shooting.”

One man was killed, and five others injured before the gunman took his own life.

Three survivors are reported in stable condition. Two others had only minor injuries.

The man who was killed, Rafael Vazquez, was a paramedic on his lunch break with his family. He'd just gone back into the restaurant because the wrong free toy had been included in his child's meal. He was shot in the back.

The gunman wore a jacket, tie and a baseball cap. Neighbors describe the man -- Alburn Blake -- as a quiet person who kept to himself.
