New details are emerging about the shooter who killed 5 and wounded 8 at the Fort Lauderdale airport today. It’s starting to look like it may have been a terrorist attack.
The shooter, Esteban Santiago, was arrested shortly after the massacre. A picture of Santiago has surfaced which has him in what appears to be Islamic garb. It’s being reported that last November Santiago told the FBI he was being forced to fight for ISIS (See CBS video below).
It’s also been revealed from voter rolls that he lived 1.6 miles from the only mosque in Alaska. Santiago was flying from Alaska to Florida.
Here’s a map of where Santiago lived with the distance to the mosque.
A new possible photo of the Florida shooting suspect is emerging from a now-closed Twitter account belonging to someone using the handle @Esteban00903.
Again, this is unconfirmed, however, the resemblance to other images of the suspect is noteable.
In the photo, the person is signaling allegiance to ISIS with their index finger.
