Esteban Santiago, Fort Lauderdale shooter, security guard

Who is Esteban Santiago?
Law enforcement officials identified Esteban Santiago, 26, as the suspect in the five deaths at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Santiago didn’t resist when he was taken into custody, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said. According to his booking information, Santiago is being held without bond on a murder charge. He lives in Alaska, where he was a security guard. ABC News reported that Santiago “worked for a security company called Signal 88 Security in Anchorage

The man who killed five people in a shooting Friday at Florida’s Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport demonstrated “erratic behavior” in November that concerned FBI agents, who referred him for mental health treatment.

Esteban Santiago, 26, pulled a semiautomatic handgun from his checked luggage Friday in the baggage claim area of Terminal 2 and began firing at travelers until he ran out of ammunition, threw his gun down and laid spread-eagle on the ground, the Associated Press reported.

In November, Santiago walked into the FBI’s office in Anchorage and claimed his mind was being controlled by a U.S. intelligence agency and the CIA was forcing him to watch ISIS videos, federal law enforcement officials told NBC News.

Santiago was clear that he didn’t intend to harm anyone, but the FBI was concerned by his erratic behavior and called police and he was taken to a mental health facility for an evaluation, FBI Special Agent in Charge George Piro of the Miami division told reporters Friday night.
