Shots were fired aboard an American Airlines plane on stopover from Columbia to Orlando at Miami International Airport Wednesday night Israel time.
The shots, according to unverified reports by CNN, were fired by a US Federal Air Marshall at a passenger who claimed to have a bomb.
The passenger died of his wounds shortly after being shot, and security forces cordoned off the plane.
There were no reports of further people who were wounded in the incident.
