"It was like he lost his mind", his aunt Maria Ruiz told The Record newspaper last Friday. They were still trying to determine if the first USA mass shooting in 2017 was an act of terrorism.
Annika Dean told Today about her harrowing experience evading suspected shooter Esteban Santiago during his rampage that left five people dead and six others injured. Some reports claim Santiago told Federal Bureau of Investigation agents that the government was forcing him to watch ISIS videos, while others take it a step further, claiming the Iraq war veteran complained he was being forced to fight for ISIS.
Santiago did not leave with the gun, Tolley said.
According to authorities the Fort Lauderdale shooter was suffering from mental health issues at the time of the incident. Santiago then served in the Alaska Army National Guard as a combat engineer, where he was discharged for unsatisfactory performance, according to KTUU.
Relatives have said they feared Santiago's 10 months in Iraq with the Puerto Rico had impaired his mental health.
"That's the kind of person he is", said Miller, who added that her father saved her from drowning in a pool when she was younger, said of her father.
Esteban Santiago is shown in this booking photo provided by the Broward County Sheriff's Office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, January 7.
Their meeting comes as local and federal authorities think they know who leaked security video of the shooting to gossip website TMZ.
Security has tightened at Wichita Eisenhower National Airport in the wake of a shooting Friday afternoon at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - At least four of the five people killed in the Fort Lauderdale airport shooting were on vacation, headed for cruises that promised sun, sand and fun.
Terry's daughter, Ryan, spoke with reporters and told them that when the shooting started her mother was able to flee from the area unharmed. George Piro, the special agent in charge in Miami, said that Santiago didn't bring anything else with him except his gun, which he checked in with his luggage.
Flying with firearms is legal in the USA as long as the guns are kept in a locked, hard-sided container as checked baggage only, under rules of the Transport Security Administration (TSA).
