The Bishop International Airport in Flint, Michigan has been evacuated after a police officer was stabbed in the neck, local media report.
All passengers are safe and have been evacuated, the airport said in a statement, urging flyers to check with their airlines for potential cancellations or delays.
“The cop was on his hands and knees bleeding from his neck,” Ken Brown, who was dropping his daughter off at the airport, told MLive. “I said they need to get him a towel.”
Brown added that he saw a man getting detained by police, and a knife on the ground near the injured officer.
More than 20 police vehicles have responded to the incident, including Flint, Burton and Michigan State Police, local media reported.
