Houston authorities say a man shot himself at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport Thursday afternoon.
KHOU-TV reports the man walked into the airport’s Terminal B, fired at least two shots into the air with an AR-15 rifle and then shot himself in the head with a pistol.
Houston police spokesman John Cannon tells The Associated Press a call came in at 1:35 p.m. on Thursday that there had been a “discharge of firearms” near the ticket counter at Terminal B
Cannon says one armed man has been transported to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries.
KHOU reports that an air marshal fired at the shooter before he shot himself. No one else was injured in the shooting.
The terminal has been shut down.
The George Bush Intercontinental Airport is the city’s largest international airport.
I would hate to see something like this used to assault our 2nd amendment rights further.
