Police say man in custody at Orlando Airport did NOT have a gun, despite early accounts


WASHINGTON (CIRCA via STORYFUL) — A man was taken into custody following a security incident at Orlando International Airport on Saturday, according to officials cited in local news reports. While early witnesses said the man had a gun, officials denied it.

This photo, which shows TSA officers surrounding an individual, was taken by Zachary Jaydon, who said the man was carrying a gun; however, Orlando Police subsequently said reports of an active shooter or a man carrying a gun were false. The airport’s official Twitter account said the incident occurred near the checkpoint for gates 1-59, adding that no shots were fired.
