UPDATES: Here is a followup post with some additional information on the CMH shooting as of 7:30 p.m. EST

Details are still hazy, but there apparently was a disturbance at the Columbus, Ohio (CMH) airport this afternoon and airport police shot and killed the man involved in the disturbance.

From the NBC News article,

Airport police in Columbus, Ohio, fatally shot a person outside of a terminal Wednesday afternoon during an escalating confrontation, officials said. No shots were exchanged and no officers were hurt in the incident just before 1 p.m. ET at the Port Columbus International Airport’s second-level curb, where passengers are dropped off for departing flights

According to the Columbus Dispatch, some flights have been delayed or canceled.  Here is what the CMH airport authority has to say on Twitter

A little bit scary for me personally as CMH is one of my airports of choice – I flew out of there just a few months ago!
