Police kill man who opened fire outside San Antonio airport, U.S.

A handgun-wielding man who opened fire outside the San Antonio airport was fatally shot by police Thursday, hours after he’d shot at vehicles from a highway overpass in the northern part of the Texas city, officials said, writes ABC.

The city’s airport was placed on lockdown after police got a call around 2:30 p.m. about a car driving the wrong way on a road at the airport, police Chief William McManus said during a news conference. An officer stopped the car at Terminal B and the man jumped out and began shooting, he said.

Police returned fire, hitting the man, McManus said. The man was later pronounced dead at a hospital. No one else was hit by gunfire.
