Multiple shots were fired at Love Field airport in Dallas, Texas, on Friday near a baggage claim area in an incident that prompted an evacuation, Dallas TV station Fox 4 reported.

Witnesses said they heard as many as nine shots, TV broadcaster NBCDFW said.

Local media reports said car traffic had been halted to the airport a few miles from central Dallas that is a major center for Southwest Airlines.

Airport officials were not immediately available for comment.
