Shots fired in Dallas Love Field Airport, suspect arrested

Shots were fired in the Dallas Love Field Airport on Monday, the Dallas Police Department announced via Twitter, adding that police forces are en route. 

Today at 10:59 a.m. (19:00 p.m.) a 37-year-old woman got dropped off at the airport and entered the building near the ticket counter in front of the southwest. She then went into the restroom, and came out dawning a hoodie or some other type of clothing, Dallas Police chief Garcia said in a Monday press conference.

She came out of the bathroom with a handgun and began firing.

"At this time we don't know where she was aiming at, it seems at the moment that she was aiming at the ceiling, sevral rounds were found," Garcia stated.

A police officer who was in the area engaged the suspect striking her in the lower extremities. The suspect was taken into custody and is currently at the hospital.

"No other individuals were injured in this event other than the suspect," Garcia clairified.
