The wounded included Equinox’s general manager Janine Ackerman, 35, and a fitness manager named Marios Hortis, 42, witnesses said. Hortis was conscious but bleeding heavily, a witness said, but the manager wasn’t moving. Police said the victims were transported to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Miami-Dade police are investigating and closed the mall Saturday afternoon and the surrounding streets, including the heavily trafficked Le Jeune Road.

The incident began shortly before 1 p.m. at the Shops at Merrick Park, 358 San Lorenzo Ave., when a man dressed in the uniform of Equinox personal trainers — black shorts and shirt — appeared in the main entrance of the gym, raised a handgun and aimed it at another man behind the counter, said a woman who witnessed the shooting.

Shed Boren told the paper he had just left, and heard the shooter was a disgruntled trainer.

“I heard from my trainer that it was a trainer that had been let go,” he said. He said the victims were the general manager and a trainer.

Fox News reports that Miami-Dade Police said on Facebook that it was “investigating a shooting at the Shops at Merrick Park. The scene is secure and no one is in danger at this time. We will continue to update with further information.”

The crowded patio at Yard House, a nearby sports bar, emptied when the shooting began, the Herald reported.

“People rushed inside,” Yard House general manager Tim Hartog said. “People were hiding under tables. It was just crazy.”
