And six more wounded.
A gunman is in custody after a deadly shooting at the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport. Sources tell DailyMail.com that the shooter killed five people and injured six more Friday afternoon. It’s unclear if the emergency is over at the airport yet, since an addition terminal has been evacuated and law enforcement were seen racing to a parking garage with guns out. The incident happened in the baggage area of Terminal 2, and it does not appear that the shooter breached the TSA-secured area of the terminal.
Drudge reports gunman is 26, MALE, AMERICAN BORN IN NJ. Name reported as Esteban Santiago.
Sounds as if the targeting was pretty random. And the police responded very fast.
“At first we thought it was firecrackers. Everyone started screaming and running. The shooter made his way down through baggage claim. He had what looked like a 9mm and emptied his entire clip. People were trying to run.”
Lea said police responded in less than a minute after the shooting began.
Once the gunman was out of bullets, “he was gunned down by police,” he added.
“It was absolutely surreal,” he said. “People were scared and frantically running to avoid being shot. People were tripping over each other. They were trying to make a fast exit out of the door.”
Remember, diversity is America’s strength. Enjoy the new normal.
UPDATE: Apparently there is a second shooter. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: No second shooter. But Santiago is a white Hispanic Muslim veteran. Or something. The reek of patsy is strong.
UPDATE: Someone needs to tell CNN that brightening the image doesn’t actually make anyone look white. Race isn’t actually skin color.
