An armed individual entered Nashville Airport through the baggage claim level earlier today.

No one besides the individual with the firearm sustained a major injury, and the airport has resumed its normal operations. Police currently have the individual in custody, where they are providing medical treatment. Regardless, the experience is a reminder of the record number of problems passengers have been causing in airports and airplanes across the country.


This is a developing story. More information will be released as it becomes available.
