Travellers Told To Hide Following Airport Shooting

At least one person has been shot near a parking garage at Oklahoma City's Will Rogers World Airport, prompting city officials to close the airport and order people inside a sprawling terminal to seek shelter.

Video from a television station helicopter showed what appeared to be a pool of blood near the bottom of a ramp leading from the airport's departure area. Two ambulances and a firetruck stood by.

Oklahoma City Police Capt. Paco Balderrama said police have confirmed one victim in the shooting and received reports of a possible second victim, but authorities have not yet found that person.

Balderrama says he doesn't know the condition of the confirmed victim. No other details of the shooting were immediately available.

The airport suspended operations and maps posted at the FlightAware website showed that at least one flight was diverted to the Wiley Post Airport in the northwestern part of the city.

Three other flights were headed toward Oklahoma City at mid-afternoon - each at least an hour away from arrival, the website showed.

"There are going to be some delays for flights until we have further information," Carney said, while referring other questions to police.

All streets were blocked off surrounding the airport, Balderrama said.
