There's been at least one person shot at the Will Rogers airport. Will update with details shortly.

News 9 (local):


Oklahoma City Police say at least one person was shot after an incident at Will Rogers World Airport, Tuesday afternoon.

Authorities tell News 9 that the shooting occurred outside of a parking garage.

According to EMSA, one person was transported from the scene in "emergency condition" to OU Medical Center. Police have not said if that person is a victim or the alleged shooter.

An airport spokesman said via Twitter that all inbound and outbound air traffic has been stopped due to the shooting. In addition, OKC Police say they have shut down the airport and are asking those inside to shelter in police as the investigation continues.


Looking for more.

EDIT:

KFOR - News 4 (local)


The Oklahoma City Police Department has closed the airport.

Those inside the airport have been asked to shelter in place.

All airport arrivals and departures have been suspended until further notice.

The FBI SWAT team has been called to the scene

I can't think that sheltering IN POLICE is very easy, comfortable, or sanitary.

On a related note, shutting down an entire airport because of a shooting in the parking garage seems a bit knee-jerk. Sadly, it's probably over a fight for a close parking spot.

Yeah there's not a whole lot of sheltering in place to be done in an airport for the majority of people in an airport. So far it sounds like it might be an individual shooting.

Just to update everyone on this, it was not a random shooting apparently.

CNN - Airline employee killed at Oklahoma City airport; suspect dead


An hourslong manhunt ended when the suspect in the fatal shooting of a Southwest Airlines employee at Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said. The suspect was found in a truck in a parking garage, said Capt. Paco Balderrama of the Oklahoma City Police Department. The suspect, who was shot in the head, has not been positively identified. Balderrama said the shooting was not random. "It's too early in the investigation to figure out the exact motive, although the crime does appear to be premeditated," he said.


The man was identified as Southwest employee, 52 year-old Michael Winchester.

Authorities went deck by deck in a parking garage, Balderrama said. The suspect's red pickup was found on the second level.

It is unclear if the shooter and victim knew each other, but "we have some basic information who the suspect might be," Balderrama said.

Shots were fired near a parking lot, he said.

The Winchester name is well-known to fans of the Oklahoma Sooners sports programs. Winchester and his son played football for the team. Mike Winchester was a punter in the mid-1980s and was a member of the 1985 national championship team.

According to the Sooners website, Mike Winchester was married and had three daughters and one son.

His son, James Winchester, is a special teams player for the Kansas City Chiefs.

His sisters, Carolyn (basketball) and Becca (rowing), also played sports for the university.
