The FBI had a formal interview with alleged gunman Estaban Santiago, the 26-year-old airline passenger accused of shooting up a baggage claim area at the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood airport Friday, in November of 2016 according to Fox News.  He told agents at an Anchorage field office that he was being forced to watch ISIS videos.

The sources told Fox News that Santiago thought US intelligence had infiltrated his mind and were forcing him to watch ISIS propaganda videos.

The FBI did not investigate the case any further after the interview and instead called local authorities who took custody of him and brought him to a local hospital for a welfare check.
