OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (AP) – A Southwest Airlines employee has died after being shot at Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma City police identified the victim as 52-year-old Michael Winchester.
Police Capt. Paco Balderrama says Winchester was working at the time and police have not determined a motive for the shooting.
Balderrama says police do not believe there is an active shooter and officers are working to fully secure the airport, which has been shut down since the shooting with only a plane carrying prisoners to the Federal Transfer Center on airport property being allowed to land. No suspect has been found.
Southwest spokeswoman Brandy King confirmed the victim was an employee and says in a news release that the airline is cancelling all flights scheduled to depart Oklahoma City for the remainder of the day Tuesday.
