“A 37-year-old woman was dropped off at the airport at about 10:59 a.m. near the ticket counters in front of Southwest Airlines, went into a restroom and then exited the restroom wearing some sort of hoodie or different type of clothing than what she had on when she walked in, Dallas police Chief Eddie Garcia told reporters in an initial update. She then produced a handgun and began firing.” [emphasis added]

“At this point we don’t know where exactly this individual was aiming,” Garcia said, adding it appears she was aiming at the ceiling. An officer already in the area engaged with the woman, striking her in the lower extremities. The suspect was taken into custody and is currently in the hospital.” [emphasis added]
