Video posted on Instagram shows officers responding about 12:20 p.m. with their guns drawn. Several shots can be heard as authorities yelled for someone to stay down.
The suspect was taken to a hospital. The video does not show that any officers were wounded.
Mark Duebner, Dallas’ director of aviation, said he does not know the suspect’s status, and referred all questions concerning the shooting to Dallas police, who have a spokesperson at the scene.
At least nine shots were fired in the video. A woman can be heard screaming and a man can be heard repeating “Oh my God, oh God.”
Baggage claim remains closed, but other parts of the airport had been reopened. Duebner said just before 1 p.m. that the entire airport had to be emptied, because during the panic, some passengers ran past the TSA security checkpoint.
Initial reports indicated that the incident began as a domestic dispute between a man and a woman. The man is believed to have been throwing large rocks at a car before the shooting occurred. READ MORE OF THIS STORY
