Gunman in custody after shooting nine - and killing three - at the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport
A gunman is in custody after a deadly shooting at the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport.
Sources tell NBC Miami that nine people have been shot and three people have died.
An airport spokesman said that the center of the incident was in the baggage claim area of Terminal 2. It does not appear that the shooter breached the TSA-secured area of the airport.
Video from the airport Friday afternoon showed hundreds of passengers corralled together on the tarmac with emergency vehicles parked outside the terminal with lights flashing.
Minutes later, he said police tol dhim there was just one shooter. By 1:30pm, the scene had settled.
'All seems calm now but the police aren't letting anyone out of the airport - at least not the area where I am,' Fleischer wrote.
The airport is one of the top 25 busiest airports in the nation.
