Another heartbreaking tragedy has struck Florida, as a gunman opened fire inside the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Jan. 6. Authorities have taken the alleged shooter into custody, but not before 5 people were killed and 8 others injured.

The story is developing but what is known about the deadly attack is this: a gunman opened fire in the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Jan. 6. The facility tweeted there was an “ongoing incident in Terminal 2, Baggage Claim.” Initial reports claimed that one person was killed (with 9 people injured) the Broward Sherriff’s Office confirmed that “multiple people [were] dead” from this attack.

UPDATES:

3:41 PM EST: The shooter was allegedly flying on a Canadian flight and had a checked gun in his baggage. The Broward County Commissioner said, via Reuters, that he claimed his bag and entered a bathroom in order to load the gun before firing shots.

3:33 PM EST: Sheriff Scott Israel has confirmed that the shooting happened downstairs in Terminal 2 and that no second shooting has been confirmed in Terminal 1. The police are not releasing any other information about the shooter at this time, but he is currently in custody and is being interviewed by the FBI.

2:52 PM EST: An active search is underway following reports of more gunshots and a second shooter.

2:45 PM EST: The shooter has allegedly been named as Esteban Santiago, 26, according to Senator Bill Nelson of Florida. He told MSBNC that Santiago was reportedly carrying a handgun and military ID when he shot people in the baggage claim.

2:35 PM EST: People appear to be moving for cover as seen in CNN footage, and there are rumors of screams heard and a possible second shooter.

At the time of the shooting, the terminal was evacuated and authorities were able to take the alleged attacker into custody, according to the New York Post. One of the victims was reportedly shot in the head and a Twitter user, who claims to have witnessed the attack, said a victim was “bleeding profusely.” They also tweeted a (WARNING) graphic picture of someone bleeding on the sidewalk outside of the airport. “Supposedly others are shot on the lower level at Delta Term 2.”

With the alleged gunman in custody, authorities will not piece together a motive or if the suspect is possibly tied to a greater plot. “You’re trying to understand, is this a one-off guy?” Jim Cavenaugh told MSNBC. “Regardless of motive, is he alone, or is there something else? We hate to think that way, but that’s the requirement for police commanders — to think that way.”

“I got off the plane and I saw people running and screaming,” Gene Messina told CNN after he got off Delta Flight 2012. “At first I was in shock but when I saw TSA agents running, I booked.”

An eyewitness account was provided, by all people, ex-White House press secretary Ari Fleischer. The 56-year-old former member of the George W. Bush administration was on hand in Ft. Lauderdale, and he tweeted updates from the scene. “Shots have been fired,” he told his followers at 12:57 PM ET. “Everyone is running.”

How horrifying! “The police said there is one shooter and five injured,” Ari tweeted at 1:03 PM ET, six minutes after his initial tweet. He followed it up with some good news, saying that “all seems calm.” He confirmed that the authorities have arrived and weren’t allowing anyone out of the airport – “at least not the area where I am.”

A funeral ceremony in Ecuador took a strange turn when a woman jumped on top of a half-open coffin and started twerking.

Mobile phone footage taken by a spectator shows the young woman sitting astride the coffin and dancing to the reggae music. She made a number of sexual moves and even leaned into the open part of the coffin to blow a kiss as she twerked.

Mourners watched this display in the middle of a road in the city of Manta, in the province of Manabí, Ecuador, and filmed with their phones.

A large crowd of men is seen cheering in high spirits as the music blasts from a loudspeaker.

The video was shared on Twitter along with a caption: “If yo girl doesn’t do this at yo funeral is she really yo girl.”

According to El Universo, the deceased was identified as 38-year-old Marlon Mero Quijije.

He was shot three times in different parts of his body when he was walking in the neighborhood of San Jose in Manta and was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Diego Bolaños, Chief of Operations of the Manta District Police, explained that six bullet holes were found in the area of the attack, of which three hit Marlon.

He added that Marlon had no criminal record.

US 2020 Election: Trump Calls Mail-In Voting A ‘Scam’

Published

on

US President, Donald Trump, has called mail-in voting a “scam” during a press conference on Friday, September 17, blasting the voting system in which states send mail-in ballots directly to voters due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

More than half of all Americans are expected to vote through the mail this presidential election, though over 40 percent of Americans voted by mail in the 2016 and 2012 general elections, according to the Election Assistance Commission.

Several states, including Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Utah, and Washington, automatically send out mail-in ballots to all state residents for the general election.

But due to the Coronavirus pandemic, California, Nevada, New Jersey, Vermont, and Washington D.C. will automatically mail out ballots to all residents for the 2020 election.

“They’re sending out tens of millions of ballots to everybody, people that didn’t expect them. People are getting inundated with ballots, they’ll be showered with ballots,” Trump said Friday.

“Everybody in this room knows it’s a scam,” the president continued, gesturing to the White House press pool. “They are never going to be able to count them.”

It’s a disaster, everyone knows it,” Trump told reporters before adding that the U.S. Postal Service was not to blame for the 2020 primary election mishaps, when hundreds of thousands of ballots went uncounted .

“Where are these ballots going? Who’s sending them? Who’s signing them?” Trump asked, attempting to show why he thinks voting through the mail is insecure.

“I think it’s going to be a terrible time for this country and we are counting on federal judges to do a great constitutional job.”

Recently, Trump cynically stated that 80 million Americans would receive mail-in ballots as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, a figure he alleges will invalidate the 2020 election results.
