Duebner tells the Dallas news site that around 1 p.m. that the entire airport had to be emptied, because some panicked passengers ran past the Transportation Security Administration checkpoint.

Earlier reports suggest that the incident began as a domestic dispute between a man and a woman. The man is believed to have been throwing large rocks at a car before the shooting occurred.

CNN reports the first-hand account from witness Bryan Armstrong who was at the scene:

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.
While that particular area of the airport is still under investigation, and thereby closed to the public, operations have resumed as normal elsewhere. FAA says arriving flights at Dallas love Field have not been impacted by the shooting, but departures may be delayed as passengers need to be re-screened.
