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

I heard two shots from my left side, said one worker. I was sitting in front of building 701.

Miami-Dade police said the shooting erupted in a warehouse area in the cargo section next to the airport, located around 66th Avenue and 23rd Street.

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

They say Etienne shot his colleagues after a dispute that started earlier in the week.

One worker, who did not want to show his face, said he heard gunshots and ran outside.

I saw that a lady was running. I wanted to ask if everything was okay, but I think she was a part of it, so I just stayed silent, and as soon as I saw her traveling to where that person was, she picked them up and then left, said a workers.

According to police, a relative of the victims first took them to VA hospital, where our cameras captured video of a car with bullet holes in the hood and glass.

The officers were taken to hospital, said Miami-Dade Police Department detective Alvaro Zabaleta. They met the victims there, and there we managed to discover that what happened was that there was some kind of dispute that had started a few days ago, and today this dispute escalated into a psychic confrontation between the four men.

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

Police said one victim was shot in the leg and the other in the stomach. The attacker, who according to the police is another employee, is in custody.

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

After the officers arrived, they managed to contact the attacker. The attacker was detained, being 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 is very close to our work. What is incredible is that it was right here in front of us, said one employee.

The incident continues to be investigated.
