Shortly after taking Esteban into custody, a report of more shots fired and a second active shooter situation was declared in the terminal 2 parking garage, but that report was later proven false.
Ft. Lauderdale Hollywood Airport then closed the entire airport and it will remain closed until Saturday morning.
A firearm was photographed on the floor of the baggage terminal and may be the firearm Santiago used to shoot 13 people.
