Officials on Wednesday night released the names of the five people killed in a shooting at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport last week.

A release from Broward County said overwhelming requests from local, national and international media outlets prompted the release of names sooner than officials thought appropriate.

“It was Broward County’s intent to officially release the names of all the victims at the appropriate time, with respect for the family’s wishes and in accordance with state and federal laws,” said Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief in a statement.

The names are:

Shirley Wells Timmons, 70, of Ohio.
Mary Louise Amzibel, 69, of Ohio.
Michael John Oehme, 57, of Council Bluffs, Iowa.
Olga M. Woltering, 84, of Marietta, Ga.
Terry Michael Andres, 62, of Virginia Beach, Va.
