"Five people were killed in a mass shooting in the baggage-claim area of Terminal 2 at Florida's Fort Lauderdale International Airport just before 1 p.m. on Friday, the Broward Sheriff's office said, adding that eight people were transported to the hospital from the airport.

The suspected attacker, identified by Florida Sen. Bill Nelson and other officials as 26-year-0ld Esteban Santiago, was shot by police and taken into custody.

NBC's Pete Williams reported that Santiago had signed up to serve in the National Guard in August 2016 and had been living in Alaska. He was born in New Jersey, Williams reported, and his family was originally from Puerto Rico.

The suspect is being interviewed by a team of FBI agents and homicide detectives, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said in a press conference. He confirmed that there were no additional incidents in any of the other terminals.

"At this point it looks like he acted alone," he said of the suspect.”*
