Video Shows Grim Aftermath of Ft. Lauderdale Airport Shooting: 'Casings Were Flying All Around Us'
The video was taken moments after Friday's attack that claimed the lives of five people.
A video showing a chaotic scene moments after a gunman opened fire at a baggage claim inside Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport in Florida Friday has emerged.
“The casings were flying all around us,” a woman running to the camera can be heard saying in the video.
The grim video also shows civilians helping the victims as well as those who were injured in the melee.
The shooting occurred at about 1 p.m. and the gunman has reportedly been identified as Esteban Santiago. He was carrying military ID, according to reports. It was unclear whether that ID belonged to Santiago or the country in which it was issued.
Santiago, 26, who was born in New Jersey, reportedly signed up to serve in the National Guard in August 2016 and had been living in Alaska, NBC reported.
The shooter had apparently come to the airport on a flight from Canada with a gun in his checked bag, Broward County Commissioner Chip LaMarca wrote on Facebook.
The suspect claimed his bag, took the gun from baggage and went into the bathroom to load it before coming out and opening fire, LaMarca wrote.
Five people perished in the shooting and several others have been sent to the hospital.
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said that no law enforcement officials fired any shots at Santiago. He was taken into police custody unharmed.
