Two employees at a Florida gym who were shot by a former co-worker on Saturday afternoon have died, according to reports.
Wilson, who was reportedly a fitness trainer, returned to the gym around 1 p.m. and shot his former colleagues, General Manager Janine Ackerman, 35, and Marios Hortis, 42, before killing himself.
“It was too loud for it to have been a weight dropping. Within two seconds, people just started running out,” Ovi Viera told the station.
Another witness, who was also inside of the gym, said he knew Wilson.
An Equinox spokesperson said Ackerman was a “kind and caring soul” and that she was loved and will be deeply missed. The spokesperson added that Hortis’ spirit will be remembered.
“His generous spirit and warm demeanor made him an always welcome presence in our world,” the gym said in a statement.
Both Ackerman and Hortis were taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition after the shooting, but died during treatment, according to reports.
