UNITED STATES. Texas: An alleged woman opened fire at the busiest Dallas Love Field Airport, Texas. She is identified as Portia Odufuwa, a 37-years old passenger who attempted several open-air gunshots in a ticket counter area of the airfield. Cops cross-fired Odufuwa for travellers’ safety, as the airport was heavily crowded. The accused was immediately booked under custody and taken to Parkland Hospital due to consequential injuries. No casualties have been reported from the airspace.
Dallas Police Chief Eddie Garcia held a media conference where she confirmed the case; she said: The woman changed her clothes in the changing room and came back indulging in firing several shots from a handgun, most of which were made toward the ceiling. Adding more, she said, “No other individuals were injured in this event other than the suspect.”
Addressing the conference, she confirmed that the accused suffered from a psychosocial disorder, and the judge ordered her to attend “psychosocial counselling”. Garcia says, “We wanted to ensure that our community knows this is not an active situation.”
Videos and photos are surfacing all over the Internet showing travelers lying on the ground when the incident broke. The Federal Aviation Administration lifted the ground stop on air traffic at 1:30 p.m.; there was a slight change in the departure, so passengers are requested to check with airlines for their flight status. This incident encountered some delays and cancellations of flights.
Love Field is the prime platform for Southwest Airlines and is one of two major airports in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. It is located in the north of downtown Dallas. According to the airport’s official website, the airport serves about 16 million passengers annually.
