An armed suspect in a standoff with police at a rental car area at Florida's Orlando International Airport on Tuesday has been "contained" but is not in custody, Orlando police said on Tuesday, adding that no shots were fired.

"Suspect is speaking with a crisis negotiator," the Orlando Police Department also said on its Twitter feed.

There were no reports of any injuries in the incident, which occurred at one of the country's busiest airports, local media reports said.

Live video showed dozens of police vehicles on the scene.

The airport serves about 42.6 million passengers a year and 35 commercial airlines have operations at the facility, according to the airport's website.
