Florida's Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport

Law enforcement officials say at least eight people have been shot and at least five are dead after a lone shooter walked into the baggage claim area of Terminal 2 and opened fire on passengers.

Broward County officals said the shooting began just outside terminal 2, and then continued inside at the baggage claim. Photos from the scene show at least two victims outside the building.

Hundreds of people were rushed out onto the Tarmac as the shooting started, and law enforcement is in the process of moving people away from the airport.

Former White House press secretary to President George W. Bush, Ari Fleischer, was at the airport at the time of the shooting and tweeted about the chaos.

Just after 1 pm, he wrote that ‘shots have been fired. Everyone is running’.

All flights have been temporarily suspended from all Fort Lauderdale airports. The airport is one of the top 25 busiest airports in the country, and is located about 25 miles north of Miami.

There are reports of a possible second shooter who may still be on the loose. Multiple people reported shots fired after the original shooter was already in custody, and TSA is reporting an ongoing active shooter situation.

    Gloria Esteban is Cuban. This guy is named Esteban. I wonder if they are related. Is this a real shooting?

    Believing half of what I see, in real life, and about 3 or 4% on film.
