FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) — Seven months after a mass shooting at a Fort Lauderdale airport, authorities and airport officials are getting an independent review on how it was handled.
It was January 6, 2017, when Esteban Santiago is accused of opening fire at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International airport at terminal 2’s baggage claim. After firing off 14 rounds, 5 people were killed and 6 injured.
