The gunman was identified as Esteban Santiago with military ID, who flew in from Alaska on Canadian Airways. 

He declared his firearm and checked it with his luggage before boarding the plane, and then collected it with his bags when the plane landed. He loaded the gun in an airport bathroom, then came out into the baggage clain area shooting at passengers there.

The gunman is said to have emptied at least three magazines and aimed at his victims heads. No motive for the attack has been published. He was taken into custdoy unarmed. 

Sheriff Scott Israel denied he was shot as earlier reported. He also denied that a second shooting incident occurred at the Ft. Lauderdale airport once the gunman was taken into custody after killing five people and injuring eight.

  • Why is it that neither our government or our news media have the intelligence to realize that every time this shit happens, the criminal has a name that is NOT anglo/European?

    Shut the fucking borders NOW!

    • That’s prejudicial.

      • GOOD! It is a free country. When the fuck did we become so communist that we are not allowed to speak the truth simply because it might hurt evil animals feelings?
        There seems to be great prejudice toward those who dare call things as they are instead of whitewashing everything so as to be Orwellian correct.

        You bet your ass I am prejudicial. I am prejudiced against those who hate our country , against those who sit in public office and feed the very animals who would destroy us and eventually will.
        I am also quite prejudiced against those who inhibit the truth and live up to stereotypes while bitching about stereotypes.
