ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Police were searching for a man who shot and killed a former Under Armour coworker after his recent firing from a Florida mall, authorities said Tuesday.

Daniel Everett, 46, is considered armed and dangerous, Orlando police Chief Orlando Rolón said during a news conference.

Everett had been fired Monday morning from an Under Armour store at Orlando International Premium Outlets. Police said he returned that evening and fatally shot store manager Eunice Marie Vazquez, 37.

Investigators believe he specifically targeted the woman, Rolón said. About a dozen customers were in the store at the time of the shooting, and officials said no injuries were reported to anyone else at the mall.

After the shooting, detectives learned that Everett created a list of other employees who police believed were potential targets. Rolón said law enforcement immediately contacted those workers to make sure they were safe. They were told to stay at places that weren't listed in their personnel files.

Under Armour management was working with police, Rolón said. Investigators didn't immediately say what prompted Everett's firing.

Authorities asked anyone who spots Everett to immediately call 911.
