Sounds like someone is trying to cover their butts.
BBC-Mobile phone footage from the scene showed police officers frisking passengers and uniformed Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers.
BBC-Broward County Commissioner Chip LaMarca wrote on Facebook that the gunman had arrived on a flight from Canada with a gun checked into his luggage.
“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”, Mr LaMarca wrote.
One of the first reports of the incident came from former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer, who said in a tweet: “I’m at the Ft. Lauderdale Airport. Shots have been fired. Everyone is running.”
Flash forward today there was a shooting at the Fort Lauderdale airport. Last I heard five were killed, eleven injured. They caught one suspect. And then about an hour later there is a second shooter.
