HOUSTON

A man who had fired a gun inside a ticketing area at Houston’s largest airport was killed after being confronted by a law- enforcement official during an incident that sent people in the terminal scrambling and screaming, police said Thursday.

It’s unclear if the man fatally shot himself or was killed by a Homeland Security agent who had confronted him, said Houston police spokesman Kese Smith.

The man’s name was not released by police, but they said he was about 30 years old.

I would bet a months pay that the TSA agent didn't shoot this man. My guess is based soley on the record of TSA in making our airports a safer place. TSA is a total waste of tax payer money and should be eliminated in favor of private sector guards who would be more respectful of the flying public. More TSA agents have been arrested in airports than terrorists.

Suggest removal:

TSA does not have guns at the airport. Homeland Security and Houston Airport PD took care of it. There is still not a lot of news. I was in Terminal E yesterday and the shooting happened in Terminal B.
