Five people were killed and eight injured after a shooter opened fire at the Fort Lauderdale airport on January 6. Iraq veteran Esteban Santiago, 26, is the suspected shooter. Santiago checked a bag with a gun when he flew from Anchorage to Florida on a Delta Air Lines flight. He picked up his bag, went to the bathroom to load his gun and emerged shooting. After emptying magazines of bullets, he laid on the ground waiting for his arrest.
