Shooting At Dallas Airport Caught On Camera
A reported officer-involved shooting at Dallas Love Field Airport took place just after noon local time on Friday.
The incident occurred near the baggage claim area and was partially caught on video and posted to Instagram.
In the brief video, police can be heard firing several shots, before telling someone to “stay down.” After a brief pause, more shots are fired.
Witnesses claim police shot a man after he was allegedly throwing large rocks at a woman’s car. In the video, a visibly upset woman can be seen near officers. Police believe the incident began as a case of domestic violence, and is not terror related.

Officials are emptying Dallas Love Field now, because during panic, passengers ran past TSA checkpoint. Going to have to rescreen everyone. — Robert Wilonsky (@RobertWilonsky) June 10, 2016
Dallas’ head of aviation says they hope to get Dallas Love Field “operational” by 2 p.m. Depends on how fast TSA can re-screen passengers.
