Shooting at Baggage Claim Area Outside Fort Lauderdale Airport
Update: Three Dead, Others Wounded, Suspect In Custody

Update: The crowds assembled on the tarmac were just running as if there was some new incident, and a witness on the phone with Shep Smith says they're being told to get low to the ground and that more shots have been fired by a garage.

This could just be a scare. Nerves are jumpy.

Or it could be a second shooter who successfully hid himself during the initial search, and was just discovered.

Shep says alarms are going off in Terminal One.

Gotta be some sort of terrorism.

Nine people have been shot and at least one person is dead after a shooting at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Friday, local law enforcement told NBC News.

The shooter is in custody, and the motive is unknown at this time.

We're all smart enough to know by now that "motive unknown" means "terrorist motive."

No economic reason to shoot up an airport. Only motives possible are some kind of "going postal" vengeance-on-your-coworkers spree shooting, or terrorism.

By the way, Fox is saying airport officials are saying the situation is "ongoing," which seems to contradict the account that the shooter is "in custody."

I suppose it could be ongoing in the sense that they have a shooter in custody, but are searching to see if there's another shooter or some other plot (bombs, say) afoot.

Fox just clarified the shooting was outside the airport, at baggage claim.
