JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — (The video above is from a prior report)

The Jacksonville Beach Police Department has identified the man that died in a workplace related shooting at Mobile Communications America on the Westside last month.

"The Jacksonville Beach Police Department sends their thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of Julio L. Adorno Rivera," posted the department on Facebook. "Julio was a valued employee of our Motorola Partner, Mobile Communications America."

Rivera was a Marine, according to an obituary, and served our country for five years. 

"Julio was a loving husband, son, brother, and friend who was deeply loved and will be forever missed," reads the obituary. 

A celebration of Julio’s life will be held on Saturday, Nov. 5. 

At this time it's not clear if the ceremony is open to the public, so First Coast News is withholding that information until we get in touch with a family member.
