Airport shooting suspect chose Florida to launch attack: FBI

(Reuters) - The suspect in Florida’s deadly airport shooting apparently chose to travel to Fort Lauderdale to carry out the rampage, and there are no signs there was any altercation on the flight or at baggage claim prior to the attack, authorities said on Saturday.

George Piro, special agent in charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s office in Miami, told reporters the suspect, Esteban Santiago, 26, cooperated with investigators during an interview that lasted several hours overnight.
