A 37-year-old woman fired several gunshots inside of Dallas’ Love Field Airport located about six miles northwest of downtown Dallas on late Monday before an officer shot and wounded her in her “lower extremities”. Once inside the airport she went into a restroom and changed clothes. She was wearing a hooded sweatshirt. Most of the shots, police said, appeared to be directed toward the ceiling. She was taken into custody and to Parkland Memorial Hospital for treatment. There were no immediate reports of Iother people injured. Dallas Police said they do not plan to release any other statements until Tuesday afternoon. The Dallas FBI and ATF are assisting Dallas Police in the investigation. A witness said the shooter woman affirmed her husband was chearing. She fired the first shot in the air. There were 10-12 more shots after that
. Police didn’t release the woman’s name or speculate as to what her motive might have been. An airport spokeswoman said early Monday afternoon that airport operations were suspended and would resume once police finished investigating. Love Field, which serves as a hub for Southwest Airlines, is one of two major airports in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. It is located just north of downtown Dallas. Footage taken from passengers and staff in the airport shows the moment the airport began lockdown procedures. The airport is no longer under lockdown. On Twitter, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said federal officials were monitoring the shooting closely. “Thankful to all first responders on-site working to ensure travelers’ safety,” he said.
