Shooting at Fort Lauderdale Airport, 5 dead

At least 5 people dead, 6 wounded in shooting at Fort Lauderdale Airport

4 dead, 9 injured in Florida airport shooting 4 dead, 9 injured in Florida airport shooting
38 Mins Ago | 01:14
A shooter opened fire at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Friday, killing five people and wounding six, a senior law enforcement official told NBC News.

A suspect was in custody, but the motive for the attack shortly before 1 p.m. was not known, the Broward County sheriff's office said.

The airport tweeted that the shooting took place at the Terminal 2 baggage claim area in the lower level.
Terminal 1 was being evacuated.

It said all services are temporarily suspended and passengers should contact their air carrier about flight information.
Hundreds of passengers and airport workers could be seen gathering and evacuating via the tarmac.

The airport has four terminals and serves more than 73,000 travelers every day. It ranks 21st in the U.S. in total passenger traffic, with more than 650 commercial flights a day.

Fort Lauderdale Airport shooting suspect named as Esteban Santiago: what we know so far

https://www.google.com/amp/www.mirro...?client=safari

>>
Witnesses say he appeared to randomly target his victims during the shooting spree which has left at at least five people dead and many more injured.

He was apprehended by authorities when he stopped shooting to reload, witnesses said.
<<

Obviously we don't know all the details yet, but my question is: why did the authorities need to wait for him to reload before they took action?

Because nowadays you have to wait for a criminal to actually fvcking kill someone before you shoot them, because you are the bad guy if you fire to quickly....

Absolutely terrifying. They had a guy live on cellphone with Shep Smith and you could hear the fear in his voice even after the fact. There were reports of a second shooter, but it's being confirmed and denied simultaneously. Military ID on the shooter, and reports of many headshots.

Someone alleging to be a witness claimed that he said "I'm not Jewish", but I heard another witness say he didn't say anything.

The suspected gunman was identified as Esteban Santiago, law enforcement officials told the Miami Herald. He is thought to have been a passenger on a flight from Canada that landed at FLL at around noon with a checked gun in his baggage.

After retrieving his bag, Santiago is believed to have gone into the bathroom and loaded the weapon. Then he stepped into the Terminal 2 baggage-claim area and began shooting.

Santiago was carrying some form of military ID. He is suspected of being a former U.S. Army soldier from the New York area.
