A man shot himself at Bush Intercontinental Airport in north Houston early Thursday afternoon, the Houston Police Department said.
The unidentified armed man approached a ticket counter in Terminal B, where he shot himself, inflicting “life-threatening injuries,” Houston Police Department spokesman John Cannon told the Los Angeles Times.
Police are investigating unconfirmed reports that the man exchanged shots with an air marshal before turning a gun on himself, Canon said in a telephone interview.
The incident began about 1:35 p.m. in a ticketing area before security checkpoints, Cannon said. There were no other reports of injuries.
