A tragic afternoon for Florida it was. A gunman injured and killed multiple people at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Friday afternoon.
After hearing reports about gunshots being fired at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, we learned that eight people were injured and 5 were killed. The ones that were injured were transported to the hospital.
Witnessing are talking about how they exited the plane and say chaos and people running but what scared them the most was TSA’s running. That caused them to bolt.
The suspect is believed to be alone and is now in police custody. Investigators are still looking into what his motive might have been.
All airport services have been suspended and parts of the airport have been evacuated. All traffic leading to the airport has been diverted and a BSO armored vehicle is blocking the ramp from Interstate 595.
Flights have either been cancelled or diverted to Miami International Airport.
