TMZ has obtained security footage from the Fort Lauderdale airport showing the initial moments of Friday’s deadly shooting, which left five dead.

In the video you can see the shooter Esteban Santiago-Ruiz pull a handgun from his waistband and fire three shots before leaving the camera’s frame.

Santiago-Ruiz was arrested and taken into custody following the shooting. No evidence has emerged that suggests the shooting was an act of terrorism or was coordinated with another person.

According to the gunman’s Aunt, Ruiz was losing his mind prior to the shooting. In November of 2016, Ruiz had entered an FBI office in Anchorage “to report that his mind was being controlled by a U.S. intelligence agency,” FBI special agent Marlin Ritzman, said at a press conference after the shooting.
