An ex-trainer at a Coral Gables, Florida gym reportedly committed suicide after shooting two of his former co-workers over a managerial dispute.

Abeku Wilson was supposedly fired from his job, which could’ve triggered the shooting, according to the Miami Herald. He targeted general manager Jeanine Ackerman and personal trainer Mario Hortis after a managerial dispute within the luxury gym.

A witness spotted an unconscious Ackerman and also claimed Hortis was bleeding heavily but was still conscious following the shooting. The two were transported via helicopter to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center. Wilson was found dead upon authority’s arrival.

Wilson was considered one of the more popular trainers at the gym. He was also a fitness model who appeared in various print brochures. The gym is located at the Shops at Merrick Park.
