Former trainer shoots two former coworkers in a gym before killing himself after he was fired

A disgruntled former gym employee and
trainer, Abeku Wilson, 33, shot two of his
former co-workers in an Equinox gym,
located in a highbrow Florida mall, before
turning the gun on himself inside the
Equinox Fitness Club in Coral Gables on
Saturday afternoon.

Wilson had recently been fired by the gym
and he was unhappy about his termination.
He shot and killed the gym’s general
manager Jeanine Ackerman and personal
trainer Mario Hortis. (pictured)
Police say Wilson targeted the two victims
after a managerial dispute at the luxury
gym.
A witness told police that they saw
Ackerman on the floor unconscious and said
Hortis was bleeding heavily but was
conscious following the shooting. Wilson
was found dead on the scene when
authorities arrived.
A helicopter from the Miami-Dade Fire
Rescue landed on the field of Coral Gables
Senior High School and transported the
wounded to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s
Ryder Trauma Center.
Before his death, Wilson was considered one
of the most popular trainers at the gym.
Reports claim he was usually clean shaven
but some of the witnesses who saw him
Saturday morning noted he looked
disheveled.
An eyewitness at the gym said they saw
Wilson moments before the shooting and
didn’t seem to be acting abnormally.
A woman named Anais Michelle tweeted she
was at the mall at the time of the shooting
and posted a video of people hiding in the
storage room.
Miami-Dade Police Department said
detectives responded to the scene of the
shooting in Coral Gables that resulted in one
death. He told Local 10: ‘The scene is
secure and no one is in danger at this time.’
Wilson who is of Ghanaian descent was
born in Boston and lived in Miami before his
death.
No news about the other coworker’s
condition is immediately known but so far,
the only dead person at the scene was
Wilson.
