    Looks like our wanna-be rapper has some competition.

    Guy claimed to have a bomb and ran down the jetway toward an American Airlines 757 loaded with passengers. When he reached into the bag he was carrying, an Air Marshall shot him. He subsequently died.

    Almost, but not quite, as stupid as the pen gun stunt.

    Passenger killed after claiming to have bomb

    Police officers circle the Boeing 757 Wednesday at Miami International Airport.

    MIAMI, Florida (CNN) -- Federal air marshals shot and killed a 44-year-old U.S. citizen on a boarding bridge at Miami International Airport after he said he had a bomb, several sources familiar with the incident told CNN.

    Flight 924 was in Miami on a stopover during a flight from Medellin, Colombia, to Orlando, Florida, when the man said there was a bomb in his carry-on luggage, a Department of Homeland Security official said.

    He was confronted by a team of federal air marshals, who pursued the man down the boarding bridge and ordered him to get on the ground, the official said. ( Watch scene after the incident -- 1:31)

    When the man appeared to reach into his baggage, at least one shot was fired by the marshals, wounding the man, the official said, adding that the marshals' actions were consistent with their training. Officials said later that the man had died of his injuries.

    Upon investigation, there was no evidence that the man had a bomb, an official said.

    This is the first time an air marshal has fired a weapon on or near an airplane, a federal official said.

    Footage from the scene shows armed SWAT team members carrying rifles outside the aircraft, along with more than a dozen of police vehicles. Paramedics were standing on the stairway to the aircraft.

    The Boeing 757, which can hold about 180 passengers, was due to take off for Orlando at 2:18 p.m. ET. It had arrived in Miami at 12:16 p.m. ET, according to the airline's Web site. No other flights at Miami International were disrupted Wednesday, an airport official said.

    Remember, there is no evidence that there was not a bomb.

    Don't upset the sheeple and all that.

    As for the rapper I think his street name was DJ Dumass.

    The rapper would have been well advised to have followed the teaching of the famous philosopher, W. C. Fields, who said: "If at first you don't succeed try again. Then if you don't succeed quit. There's no sense in making a fool of yourself."

    I took my CCW course just outside St Paris. Ah well, I'm sure his family was upset. I would be too. But really, how smart is it to "celebrate" by putting a gun to your head? If they want to outlaw anything it should be stupid people.
