Gunman kills 5, injures 8 at Ft. Lauderdale airport
Five people are dead and a shooting suspect is in custody Friday after a lone gunman opened fire at a baggage claim area in Florida's Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, shooting some people in the head without saying a word, witnesses and investigators said. Paramedics rushed eight people to hospitals, reports Fox News.

The suspect, identified as Esteban Santiago, had served in the Alaska Army National Guard until August 2016 when he was given a "general discharge," the Guard's public affairs director Candis Olmsted confirmed to Fox News.

The suspect brought a gun in a checked bag on an Air Canada flight, officials said. "He claimed his bag and took the gun from baggage and went into the bathroom to load it. Came out shooting people in baggage claim," Broward County Commissioner Chip LaMarca wrote on Facebook.

Santiago was taken into custody without incident and was unhurt. Law enforcement never fired any shots, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said.
