    Ft Lauderdale Airport Shooting

    Shooter entered a baggage claim area and apparently started shooting at random. There are reports he emptied 3 magazines from a handgun and walked away until the security told him to get down and he did. So the shooter is in custody. Reports of 9 shot 5 dead.

    Unconfirmed reports of another shooting in the garage. People taking cover all over the place, running out on the tar mat and hiding behind vehicles. Shooting started at 12:55 eastern.

    Confirmed reports of a second active shooter at this airport.

    Update it seems the second shooter was an over reaction to someone injured running away, or perhaps a loud noise.

    Shooter was a passenger on a Canadian Airline flight. Had a checked weapon, Retrieved his checked weapon, went into the bathroom and loaded the weapon then came out and started shooting. He had a military ID, the branches are checking his status.

    They've arrested the shooter. The guys on ABC were talking about how the needed to stop guns from being in the baggage claim. Security isn't for the passenger. It's for plane. No hijacking to Cuba or flying into some building. We're collateral damage.

    Picked up his pistol from checked baggage and opened fire.

    This does not bode well for checking guns.

    They evacuated the airport a liitle while latter sounds like a bomb threat! They violated all rules of a controled evacuation and got as many people as far away as possible. It was completly un-controlled and a security threat letting that many people out on the tarmac. I really doubt that they will admit it. But as a 25 year safety man I can tell you something big happened.

    I'm sure we'll have plenty of more "reports" to clarify or counter the "facts" that have been broadcast.

    Give it enough time, someone will try to make this about those evil black rifles and how their assault-clip, puppy-kicking, baby-hating shoulder things that go up caused this shooting.
