Footage Is Released Of The Moment Esteban Santiago Pulled Out A Handgun And Started Firing In The Fort Lauderdale Airport’s Baggage Claim.
This is the moment the Fort Lauderdale killer pulled out his handgun and started firing at innocent passengers.
Esteban Santiago, 26, shot dead five people and wounded six more when he opened fire inside the baggage claim at Terminal 2 of the Florida airport on Friday afternoon.
Shocking surveillance footage, first obtained by TMZ, shows the Iraq war veteran calmly walk into shot before pulling the pistol from his waistband.

Santiago then runs out of the frame as people desperately take shelter.
The 26-year-old could face the death penalty after being accused of an act of violence at an international airport resulting in death, and weapons charges.
Santiago flew into the airport from Anchorage, Alaska – with a layover in Minneapolis-St Paul – on Delta flight 2182 with a firearm as his only piece of checked luggage, in accordance with TSA regulations, authorities believe.
