One Dead, Nine Wounded At Fort Lauderdale Airport Shooting

A shooting has reportedly happened at the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport.

Sources tell MSNBC that nine were shot and one person has died. The shooter is also reportedly in custody.

Video from the airport Friday afternoon showed hundreds of passengers corralled together on the tarmac with emergency vehicles parked outside the terminal with lights flashing.

An airport spokesman said that the center of the incident was in the baggage claim area of Terminal 2.

Former White House press secretary Ari Fleisher was at the airport at the time and tweeted about the chaos Friday afternoon.

Just after 1pm, he said that the scene had settled.

‘All seems calm now but the police aren’t letting anyone out of the airport – at least not the area where I am,’ Fleischer said.
