US-Five killed in shooting at Fort Lauderdale airport

Gunshots erupted at the Fort Lauderdale airport on Friday, leaving multiple people dead.

Authorities say the gunman, who appeared to be acting alone, is in custody.

Five people are dead, and eight people were transported to a hospital, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office said on Twitter.

Former White House spokesman Ari Fleischer also tweeted: “I’m at the Ft. Lauderdale Airport. Shots have been fired. Everyone is running.”

Parts of the airport were apparently evacuated following the incident.
Aerial footage from CNN affiliates showed large groups of people standing outside on the tarmac.
In November 2016, nearly 2.5 million travelers passed through Fort Lauderdale’s airport, according to a government report on the facility.
