Fitness manager Marios Hortis, 42, died while being transported to a local hospital for injuries he sustained in a Saturday shooting at upscale Equinox Fitness in Coral Gables, Fla., by fired instructor Abeku Wilson, police said on Sunday.
The gym’s manager, Janine Ackerman, 35, was also killed. Miami-Dade police say Wilson was pronounced dead inside the gym.
Police say the shooting happened after Wilson was fired from his job for “workplace violence” and escorted off the property.
Abeku Wilson later returned with a handgun and opened fire, hitting Ackerman and Hortis.
“There is nothing I can say to lessen the searing pain we all feel at this terrible moment,” Harvey Spevak, CEO of the upscale fitness chair, said on Sunday in a Facebook post.
