ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. (WHTM) – Elizabethtown College says swimmers and coaches who flew into the Ft. Lauderdale airport are safe.
A gunman opened fire at the airport Friday, killing five people and wounding eight before being taken into custody.
In a statement on its athletics website, the college said all members of the men’s and women’s swim teams and two coaches who flew into the airport are safe.
All but one student left the airport safely in vans before the shooting. The remaining student, who had a late arriving flight, was confirmed safe at the airport, the college said.
The swim teams are in Florida for their annual winter training trip at Lynn University in Boca Raton.
