A man opened fire at the international airport Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood. Video surveillance was seen as the offender slowly pulls out a gun from his belt and begins to shoot.
The offender, dressed in a blue sweater with black stripes on the shoulders, holding the jacket in his left hand, enters the frame, with the weapon in his right hand and shoots him three times.
The couple sitting next to a criminal, falls to the ground. Some people, not seeing where to run, falling face down on the ground. The gunman was a 26-year-old Esteban Santiago. He admitted to the police in planning the attack. Were killed 5 people, injured many others. "Two of the wounded victims remained in intensive care on Sunday afternoon, while the remaining four were released or recovering in Broward General Hospital," said Sheriff Scott Israel.
Federal authorities were familiar with Santiago. He sent the red flags a few weeks ago. He visited the FBI office in Alaska in November, saying that his mind was under the control of American intelligence. He left the gun in the car. Santiago faces three Federal charges, and each carries the possibility of the death penalty, said the U.S. Department of justice. He said he went to the toilet at the airport, loaded the gun and shot the first people he saw, according to the criminal case.
