Fort Lauderdale shooter Esteban Santiago told FBI agents he carried out his Jan. 7 deadly shooting in the name of the Islamic State, CNN reports.
Santiago killed five and wounded six in a shooting rampage in the baggage claim area of Fort Lauderdale airport. Santiago reportedly checked his gun in his bag, loaded it in the bathroom, and randomly executed his fellow passengers.
The FBI revealed Santiago’s confession at his bond hearing Tuesday. Santiago appeared to harbor delusions about being controlled by ISIS, and reportedly walked into an FBI field office in Alaska to confess his delusions about being controlled by ISIS.
Official ISIS media arms have not clarified whether they will accept Santiago’s confession.
