According to Daily Mail, Esteban Santiago came into the airport on a flight out of Anchorage, Alaska on Delta flight 2812.
The checked firearm was his only piece of luggage.
After he arrived and retrieved his luggage, he went into the bathroom to load his gun.
He then came out and began shooting in the baggage claim area.
WARNING: Extremely graphic and horrifying. Proceed at your own risk.
The gun was a Walther 9mm with two magazines for a total of 15 rounds.
He shot all 15 bullets during the shooting.
Five people were killed, six were wounded.
After the shooting, he dropped the gun and lay spread-eagled on the ground.
Santiago had a prior arrest for assaulting his girlfriend.
He was also investigated for child pornography, but no charges were ever filed.
Santiago is an Iraq war veteran. Sec. Ash Carter says more has to be done to help veterans.
On Sunday, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said the incident was another brutal reminder that more needs to be done to help veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental issues.
‘We keep learning more about how to deal with this kind of illness, we’re gonna learn more and we have to do more,’ he said on NBC’s Meet the Press.
‘The so-called invisible wounds of war — are something we do take seriously and we have to take seriously.’
The investigation is ongoing and it is not yet clear that it was due to mental illness, and not terrorism.
Please keep all the people affected in your prayers.
