Dallas, Texas – A shooting at Dallas Love Field Airport caused panic and mayhem Monday morning. It started when a 37-year-old woman was dropped off near the Southwest ticket counter at 10:59 a.m., Dallas Police Chief Eddie Garcia said in a news briefing after noon.
The woman went into a restroom, changed her clothing, and then exited, Garcia said. An officer who was in the area then saw her pull out a handgun and begin firing.
