Terminal 3 was evacuated and cordoned off and arrival and departure roads to the airport were closed. Passenger Robert Perez told CBS2 that TSA agents came through the terminal and yelled that a man had a gun.
"I heard popping and everybody dropped to the ground," Perez said. Arial shots from Sky2 showed buses were transporting passengers that had disembarked from planes onto the runway area.
