    DH and I have been at this airport many times (pre- and -post cruise). Very busy all the time. Right now, there would be hundreds of cruise passengers arriving and departing.

    I keep hearing the shooter was 'contained.' I wonder what that means and if he is the only one involved?

    Reportedly he was shooting OUTSIDE at the baggage counter. That is very worrisome. How do yo prevent shootings that happen BEFORE security lines?

    The news is reporting nine shot and the shooter in custody. I was
    just thinking about how easy it would be to do something at an airport in
    unsecured areas. People are gathered and waiting around. Wth. Horrible.

    You cant. No matter where they create the security line there will always be a group of people waiting to get in.

    The shooting occurred at the baggage claim inside Terminal 2. Aerial footage showed a crowd of people gathered outside on the tarmac.
    Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer, who was traveling from the airport, tweeted about the incident:

    I'm at the Ft. Lauderdale Airport. Shots have been fired. Everyone is running.

    You know, I'm thinking back to when my husband used to smoke (thankfully, he quit 2 years ago). When we traveled and got off the plane, the first thing he wanted was a cigarette. He would go outside to have a one and then walk back in to get the bags. He just walked in.....no one checked that he was actually a passenger getting his bag.

    Yes they are, why are they not being surrounded by LE.
