    MIAMI, Florida (CNN) -- A person was shot and wounded on the Jetway to an American Airlines passenger jet that was at the terminal at Miami International Airport, an airline official said.

    A federal official told CNN that the passenger was shot by a federal air marshal, who felt the passenger was acting in a threatening manner. A senior administration official added that the passenger claimed to have a bomb in his carry-on luggage.

    An air marshal told the passenger to stop, and he did not, the official said, adding that the marshal fired after the passenger reached into his carry-on bag.

    The weapon was fired on the Jetway to Flight 924, which was on a stopover in Miami during a flight from Medellin, Colombia, to Orlando, Florida, police said.

    The Boeing 757, which can hold about 180 passengers, was due to take off for Orlando at 2:18 p.m. ET.

    Footage from the scene showed police cars and what appeared to be SWAT vehicles surrounding the plane. Several officers wielding rifles were running toward and around the plane.
    Hmmmm.

    Per CNN, a passenger, while in the jetway, claimed to have a bomb in carry-on luggage. When the passenger reached into the carry-on luggage, the air marshall thought he was acting in a threatening manner and shot him. Oh well...all is well that ends well. Wonder what the rest of the story will be...

    From Fox News:
    "The air marshal pursued and tackled the suspect on the jet bridge between the terminal and the airplane.. American Airlines flight 924 was arriving in Miami-Dade International Airport on Wednesday when the incident occurred. One person was reportedly injured in the incident."

    So far what I am hearing in the local news.
    44 year old Male. US Citizen. He was screaming and threatening that he had a bomb in his hand luggage (backpack). Running inside the plane. Federal Marshal shot twice and kill him deader than hell. Some say the guy died inside the plane and others saying he died inside the jetway. Wife was with suspect and alleges that the guy was bipolar. MDPD Bomb Squad removed backpack from plane and will detonate it in safe area. Wife arrested for questioning. Plane being searched from top to bottom. Terminal is back to normal operations.
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.
