Terrorism "not ruled out" as motive behind Fort Lauderdale shooting

Authorities identified the suspect as Esteban Santiago, 26, an Army veteran who allegedly opened fire in an airport baggage claim and was taken into custody without incident by a Broward County sheriff’s deputy, according to Sheriff Scott Israel.

Israel said Santiago was armed with a semi-automatic handgun and was “indiscriminately firing” at people in a “cowardly, heinous act.”

Santiago arrived in Fort Lauderdale early Friday aboard a Delta flight that originated Thursday in Anchorage and passed through Minneapolis, according to a federal official who is not authorized to speak publicly about the case.
