Miami Gardens Police responded to a workplace shooting on Thursday, December 6, 2012. A 59 year-old woman, Guadalupe Hernandez, reportedly fired several bullets at her place of work. Ms. Guadalupe Hernandez’s alleged target, her boss. Security guard Eddie Hernandez claimed that he witnessed Ms. Hernandez run out to the parking area as soon as Ms. Hernandez’s supervisor parked. Shots then rang out and Ms. Hernandez’s boss ran into the building claiming that Guadalupe Hernandez was attempting to shoot her. There were several co-workers in the building at the time of the shooting. Another gentleman in the lobby of the building was able to strip the gun away from Ms. Hernandez as she was trying to reload. It is still unclear why Ms. Hernandez unlashed this violence where she worked. However, Ms. Hernandez’s husband, Raul Fernandez, reported that the night before the shooting, he overheard his wife during a telephone conversation that she was afraid that they were going to fire her. In addition, he explained that Guadalupe and her boss had their differences in the past.
