At least three people were killed and nine others were injured after a shooting at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Friday, senior law enforcement and federal officials told NBC News.

The shooter is in custody, and the motive is unknown at this time, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office said. The airport tweeted that the incident took place at the Terminal 2 baggage claim area in the lower level of the airport. All services are temporarily suspended and passengers should contact their air carrier about flight information, it said.

Hundreds of passengers and airport workers could be seen gathering and evacuating via the tarmac.

The airport has four terminals and serves more than 73,000 travelers every day. It ranks 21st in the U.S. in total passenger traffic, with more than 650 commercial flights a day.

Florida Governor Rick Scott’s office said the governor was en route to Fort Lauderdale to be briefed by law enforcement, but could not confirm information on fatalities, injuries or motive.
