Passengers Evacuated After Police Stabbing at Michigan Airport
An airport in the Midwestern state of Michigan was evacuated Wednesday after a police officer was stabbed in the neck, authorities said.
Michigan State Police said the officer was in critical condition after being stabbed as he patrolled in the main terminal of Bishop International Airport, a small regional airport in Flint, Michigan.
Airport officials posted a statement on Facebook that all passengers were safe. Flint Mayor Karen Weaver said in a release “the situation is under control,” but she urged officials to take “extra precautions” in light of the incident.
She said police took a “person of interest” into custody at the airport, and officers have been stationed around City Hall as a cautionary measure.
No details about the suspect were immediately released.
