'Multiple dead' in shooting at Florida airport

At least five people have been shot dead and eight others wounded in a shooting incident at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Florida.

Florida's Broward County Sheriff's office confirmed Friday's shooting at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. He also said that a suspect was in custody at the airport.

Authorities said they received a call about shots being fired at around 12:55 pm local time (1755 GMT).

Security officials corralled passengers into areas including underneath jetways and at least one open space on the runway apron, according to images on cable news networks.

Several people have been transported to a hospital for medical attention, local authorities said.

Ari Fleischer, a former press secretary for US President George W Bush, said on Twitter shots were fired and "everyone is running".

Fleischer later said:  "All seems calm now but the police aren't letting anyone out of the airport - at least not the area where I am."

Earlier, the airport had confirmed on Twitter of "an ongoing incident in Terminal 2" near the baggage claim area.
