>> Accused Florida airport gunman Esteban Santiago appearing in federal court Monday for the shooting deaths of five people in Ft Lauderdale. Charges that could bring him the death penalty. Santiago barely spoke during the brief hearing, confirming to a federal judge that he understood the charges against him and that he is a US citizen.
New video published by TMZ shows the gunman walking calmly past the airport's baggage area before pulling his gun out and shooting victims indiscriminately. Distraught passengers can be seen scattering and ducking for cover. The 26 year old Iraq war veteran with a history of erratic behavior, telling investigators he planned the attack, buying a one-way ticket from Alaska to Florida to carry it out.
FBI agents in Alaska revealed over the weekend that police took a handgun from Santiago in November, when he said his mind was being controlled by the CIA. The gun was returned last month after psychiatric tests found he was not mentally ill. Six people were also wounded in Friday's attack and several dozen suffered minor injuries trying to escape the ensuing chaos.
With a bail hearing set for January 17, prosecutors are calling for bail to be denied.
