Miami airport parking garage shooting leaves 2 dead

Published: Updated:

MIAMI (AP) – Authorities say a shooting in an employee parking garage at Miami International Airport has left two workers dead.

News media outlets cite police as saying that a witness heard the men arguing about 6 a.m. Wednesday. He then heard a volley of gunshots, followed by a single one.

Miami-Dade police Det. Marjorie Eloi is quoted as saying that officers found both men dead: one on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds, and the other slumped against a car with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his face.

Airport spokesman Greg Chin is quoted by the Miami Herald as saying the garage was closed for about 45 minutes while police investigated. He also said both men worked at the airport and that flights were not affected.
