An individual was injured at Nashville International Airport earlier today after discharging his weapon in the baggage claim area, sources say.
A statement was released to the airport's social media pages, describing the incident:
"This morning at 7:07 A.M., an individual entered the baggage claim level of Nashville International Airport with a firearm, threatening to harm themselves. The individual discharged the firearm - subsequently injuring themselves."
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.
