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.
