VIDEO Man Shot Outside Baggage Claim at Dallas Love Field Airport

An incident at Dallas Love Field Airport that led to a man being shot by police outside the terminal stemmed from a domestic disturbance between a woman and her children’s father, a police spokesman said.

The man who was shot was the father, the spokesman said. The man’s condition was not given.

A police officer shot a man Friday outside baggage claim at Dallas Love Field Airport, a witness confirmed.

The condition of the victim is not known.

Witness Bryan Armstrong said it appeared the man was approaching the officer with a large rock when he was shot.

An officer told the man to “drop the rock and stop walking,” but he continued to approach the officer slowly as people came through the terminal door unaware of what was happening, Armstrong told CNN.

Nine shots can be heard on a video Armstrong posted to Instagram. A woman is crying in the background of the video as someone screams, “Get down!”

After the sound of gunshots, a male voice can be heard shouting, “Stay down, stay down!”

Dallas police said they had no immediate information on the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
