Airport shooter in court: We'll get our first look today at the Iraq war veteran charged with killing five people and wounding six others at a Florida airport Friday. Estaban Santiago is set to appear in court this morning. Federal investigators said Santiago planned the attack and bought a one-way ticket to gain access to the busy airport. Prosecutors have not ruled out terrorism as his motive. If convicted, he could face the death penalty.
