@kwellscomm PraiseIndy.com News  —  

A chaotic scene continues on the ground at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport in Florida after a gunman opened fire Friday, killing five people and wounding eight others at a baggage claim area.

Police have the suspected gunman in custody but heavily armed police have taken up positions around another terminal. Live video shows thousands of passengers walking or running along the tarmac after being evacuated from the building.

Florida Senator Bill Nelson identified the suspect as Esteban Santiago, 26, and said he was carrying a military ID when he was arrested. There’s no word yet on a cause for this massacre.
