CBS4 News Miami: The Pentagon said Esteban Santiago-Ruiz went AWOL several times as a specialist during a stint with the Alaska National Guard and was demoted to private first class, the Associated Press reported. He was given a general discharge, which is lower than an honorable discharge.
The FBI said they were trying to confirm where he served. In November 2016, he walked into an FBI office in Anchorage claiming that he was being forced to fight for ISIS and was sent to a psychiatric hospital. FBI spokesman George Piro confirmed he was evaluated by the FBI while living in Alaska. “We have begun the difficult task of processing the crime scene,” FBI spokesman George Piro. “We have not ruled out terrorism and we will be perusing every angle to try to determine a motive behind this attack.” About five years ago, Esteban Santiago-Ruiz was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations for child porn. Three weapons and a computer were seized, but there was not enough evidence to prosecute, according to law enforcement sources.
At least five people were killed and another eight were injured in the shooting inside Terminal 2, which serves Delta Air Lines and Air Canada, according to Broward Mayor Barbara Sharief. Santiago was taken into custody after the shooting. Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said Santiago was possibly a “homegrown violent extremist” who followed terror groups on social media. Israel said there was no evidence Santiago was a member of any terror group but detectives and federal authorities are continuing to investigate whether he had any ties.
