Friday's lone-wolf airport shooting in Fort Lauderdale left five people dead and wounded several others.
Law enforcement authorities were able to take suspected assailant Esteban Santiago in "without incident," but that's not always the case. In fact, it's pretty unusual for an airport shooter to go unscathed, as exemplified in past airport shootings.
Below are other high-profile instances of violence exhibited at airports, each with differing motives and outcomes.

As Americans celebrated their next commander-in-chief, Llyod Buie, an Army vet turned airline worker, opened fire and killed 52-year-old Michael Winchester at Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City.

Paul Anthony Ciancia, 23, shot his way past an airport checkpoint with a .223-caliber rifle he carried in his duffel bag., ultimately killing a TSA worker in Terminal 3 of Los Angeles International Airport.

Independence Day celebrations came to a screeching halt after an Egyptian-born man pulled a gun and opened fire at a busy ticket counter of El Al Israel Airlines. Hesham Mohamed Hadayet managed to kill two Israelis before authorities shot him dead.
Following 9/11, many were quick to describe the incident as an act of terrorism. U.S. officials were initially hesitant, but arrived at the same conclusion in April 2003. FBI officials reported that the assailant was bent on becoming a martyr.
