Here we go…
From CBS Miami:
Police were able to apprehend Santiago-Ruiz without having to fire their own weapons when the gunman apparently ran out of bullets.
Law enforcement said he was found with an active military ID and is an American citizen, born in New Jersey. Previous known addresses include Penuelas, Puerto Rico and Anchorage, Alaska.
They add that in November 2016, he walked into an FBI office in Anchorage claiming that he was being forced to fight for ISIS. He was sent to a psychiatric hospital.
In 2011 or 2012, he was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations for child porn. Three weapons and a computer were seized, but there was not enough evidence to prosecute, according to law enforcement sources.
Air Canada just tweeted that they have no record of an Esteban Santiago OR checked guns on their flights heading to Ft. Lauderdale.
