Airport resumes operations after shooting
OKLAHOMA CITY - Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City has resumed operations after being closed for several hours following a fatal shooting.
The airport was shut down by police shortly after a Southwest Airlines employee was shot about 1 p.m. Tuesday. Michael Winchester died after being taken to a hospital following the shooting and a suspect was later found dead in a pickup truck in an airport parking garage.
Police and airport spokeswoman Karen Carney said about 6:30 p.m. that the airport had resumed operations.
Hundreds of people were kept inside the airport terminal for hours after the shooting and Carney said about 25 flights were canceled, most of those by Southwest Airlines, which canceled all flights scheduled to depart Oklahoma City for the remainder of the day.
