MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, FLA. (WSVN) – Two airport cargo workers were rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital after they were shot near Miami International Airport on Thursday night.

“I heard two shots coming from my left side,” said a worker. “I was sitting in front of building 701.”

Miami-Dade police said the shots rang out from a warehouse in the cargo section adjacent to the airport, located around 66th Avenue and 23rd Street.

Police identified the shooter as 31-year-old Jackson Etienne. He now faces two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm.

They say Etienne shot his colleagues following an argument that started earlier in the week.

A worker, who did not want to show his face, said he heard the shots and fled outside.

“I saw that there was a lady running. I was going to ask if everything was okay, but I guess she was one of them, so I was quiet and just saw her drive to where this person was, pick them up and then leave,” said one worker.

Police say a relative of the victims first drove them to the VA hospital, where our cameras captured a car with bullet holes in the hood and windshield.

“Officers have been sent to the hospital,” Miami-Dade Police Department Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said. “They met the victims there, and that’s when we were able to find out that what happened was that there was some kind of argument that happened several days before, and today, this argument degenerated into a psychic confrontation between four men.”

The two victims were two men, one aged 18 and the other 23.

According to the police, one victim was shot in the leg and the other in the stomach. The shooter, who police say is another employee, is in custody.

Both victims were transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital in stable condition.

“Once officers arrived they were able to make contact with the shooter. The shooter is being held, questioned by investigators, along with the other person who was also involved in the confrontation,” Zabaleta said.

Employees returning to work on Friday remain stunned.

“It’s too close to our work. What’s amazing is that it was right in front of us,” one employee said.

The incident continues to be under investigation.
