ORLANDO, Fla. - A man was shot during a dispute with a coworker early Friday at a Waste Management facility in Orlando, officials said.

The shooting was reported at 5:28 a.m. at 3510 Rio Vista Ave.

Orlando police said the workers were on a company truck when they got into an argument. They got out of the truck a couple blocks from the facility and began fighting, police said.

Anthony Montgomery, 35, is accused of shooting the other employee, who was not identified, in the abdomen, police said.

Police said the victim was taken to a hospital in stable condition with a single gunshot wound to the stomach.

Montgomery was arrested and charged with attempted first-degree murder, police said.

"Employee safety is a primary concern for Waste Management and our facilities are accessible by badge only," the company said in a statement. "Sadly, we can confirm that early this morning we had an employee dispute and shooting at our Orlando hauling site. The victim has been transported to the hospital and the local police have a suspect in custody. Our facility is secure and we will continue operations to service customers in Orlando."
