5 ways to get creative with Easter baskets

(CNN) - One person is dead and two wounded after a shooting Saturday at the upscale Shops at Merrick Park mall in Coral Cables, Florida, officials said.

Another trainer at the fitness center told one of his members the shooting involved a disgruntled former employee.

The person killed is believed to be the shooter, who committed suicide after opening fire, police said. "I heard from my trainer that it was a trainer that had been let go".

"The first sounded like something heavy had just dropped, and then there were three or four more and I grabbed my towel", said Reyes, who was standing barefoot outside the gym after scrounging some sweat trousers and a T-shirt to wear.

Anais Michelle said she was walking into the mall with her mother when she saw people coming down from the third level, some crying about a shooting at the gym. "This wasn't someone who made a decision to kill a bunch of people".

A witness said there was panic inside the gym.

At Yard House, a restaurant inside the mall, many patrons were outside dining or waiting for their lunches when police told restaurant employees to get everyone inside.

Coral Gables police rushed to the scene, shutting down traffic outside the shopping mall and placing nearby businesses on lockdown.

Police said the area was secure about 40 minutes later, the station reported.

The newspaper said about 100 people were eating at Yard House's outdoor patio when the shooting began. He said the mall was closed until Sunday. However, Miami-Dade Police will now take over the investigation.

A call to Equinox was forwarded to the Brickell location of the fitness where a woman said: "I'm not sorry we're not taking any calls from the media".
