Washington: Multiple shots were fired at Love Field airport in Dallas, Texas, on Friday near a baggage claim area in an incident that prompted an evacuation, Dallas TV station Fox 4 reported.
Witnesses said they heard as many as nine shots, TV broadcaster NBCDFW said. Local media reports said car traffic had been halted to the airport a few miles from central Dallas that is a major center for Southwest Airlines.
Police officers reportedly shot a man in the baggage claim area of the airport – although the circumstances of the incident remain unconfirmed.
Eyewitnesses say that a man failed to comply with officers’ orders before they opened fire on him. One witness, who captured the shooting on video, told CNN that he saw the man holding what looked to be a rock in his hands.
