Authorities have confirmed that at least five people are dead and eight others injured after a shooting at the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The airport was evacuated Friday afternoon and the Mayor of Fort Lauderdale said the airport would be shut down pending an investigation. However, officials were attempting to move flights to operate at another terminal.
There are no departures to Fort Lauderdale from Syracuse scheduled for today. Although, there is one flight scheduled to arrive in Syracuse from Fort Lauderdale at 10:26 p.m. tonight, but at this time there is no word on whether that will happen.
