FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — In a story Feb. 9 about Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport hiring a consultant to review the response to January's mass shooting there, The Associated Press misspelled the company's name. St. Louis-based Ross & Baruzzini Inc. is the name of the company, not Ross & Barruzini.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Consultant to look at how Florida airport handled shooting

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Officials in Florida are hiring a consultant to assess how well authorities handled the aftermath of a shooting in the baggage claim area at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
The SunSentinel (http://bit.ly/2kvbEEA) reports Broward County officials are in negotiations with St. Louis-based Ross & Baruzzini Inc. to look at a variety of issues, including general airport security, cooperation between agencies and assistance to passengers and their families. Five people died and six others were injured in the Jan. 6 attack.
The shooting was followed by panic by people in other terminals. There also were rumors of additional shooters that led to stampedes onto tarmacs.
Twenty-six-year-old Esteban Santiago of Anchorage, Alaska, was taken into custody after the shooting and is being held on a 22-count federal indictment charging. He could face the death penalty.
