@kwellscomm TLCNaptown.com News —
A chaotic scene continues on the ground at the Fort Lauderdale (Hollywood) International Airport in Florida after a gunman opened fire Friday, killing five people and wounding eight others at a baggage claim area.
UPDATE: Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel confirmed the number of dead, the identity of the shooting suspect as the man named below and said at this point it is not believed that there is a second shooter. The airport will remain shut down until further notice
Police have the suspected gunman in custody but heavily armed police have taken up positions around another terminal. Live video shows thousands of passengers walking or running along the tarmac after being evacuated from the building.
Florida Senator Bill Nelson identified the suspect as Esteban Santiago, 26, and said he was carrying a military ID when he was arrested. There’s no word yet on a cause for this massacre.
Flights remain grounded with the airport on lockdown as authorities try to determine if anyone else was involved in this shooting spree. Surviving shooting victims have been taken to area hospitals including Broward Health Trauma Center for treatment. This is a developing story.
