Airplane Shooting

A law enforcement official says a passenger who made a threat has been shot on a jetway leading from an American Airlines plane in Miami.

There's no word on whether the passenger has been killed.

Homeland Security Department spokesman Brian Doyle says a passenger had indicated there was a bomb in a carry-on bag, after
the plane had parked at the gate.

The passenger was confronted by air marshals but ran off the plane.

Doyle says a team of air marshals gave chase and ordered the
passenger to get on the ground. The passenger did not comply, and
then was shot while apparently reaching into a bag.

The plane had just arrived from Colombia and was headed on to Orlando.

A spokesman for Colombia's civil aviation agency says the flight left normally with no problems.
