Police say gunman had just been fired from fitness center
The gunman who shot and killed two managers at a Florida gym before turning the gun on himself had just been fired from the fitness center for workplace violence, police said Sunday.
The Miami-Dade Police Department said in a statement Sunday that Abeku Wilson, 33, of Miami, was let go from his job as a fitness trainer at the Equinox gym in Coral Gables on Saturday “due to work place violence and was escorted off the premises.”
Shortly after his dismissal, Mr.
Wilson returned to the gym armed with a handgun and fired multiple shots at both managers before shooting himself to death. Police said the managers were targeted and that the shooting was not random.
Equinox issued an email statement Sunday saying that it is “deeply saddened” by the deaths of the two employees,
