Yesterday at 1pm, Esteban Santiago stepped out of a bathroom in the baggage claim area of an airport in Florida and started shooting people for no apparent reason. According to a key witness, he unloaded 3 clips of 9mm ammo at random people running for cover or lying on the floor. Five people died and several more were injured. As of this moment, Reuters is reporting there is no apparent motive.
Esteban was not saying anything while shooting and he laid down when he emptied his last clip and waited peacefully to be arrested. As of now, there is no explanation as to why he was in Florida.
And now it has been brought to my attention that Florida is set to debate a bill in the state congress next week about allowing citizens to carry firearms in airports.
