Shooting in Canberra Airport

In Canberra, Australia’s capital city, at the airport, several gunshots were fired, which arose panic among passengers. According to police reports, the shots happened Sunday afternoon local time at the check-in area. As of now, the police hope that no people are injured. However, the airport was quickly evacuated right after the accident.

Witnesses claim that they heard five gunshots from the check-in area. Later, several bullet holes were found in the window of the terminal. Currently, all flights have been postponed, canceled, or rescheduled, and hundreds of people have been evacuated. The police and regional authorities are working on the crime scene.

The police reported that one man has been arrested. According to official reports, the shooter was acting alone, and his motives were not discovered so far. A police representative stated that all security cameras were checked and analyzed, and, currently, no other suspects were found. Hence, the arrested man is the only person responsible for the shooting.

According to BBC, an eyewitness claimed to hide under a desk in an airport lounge. Moreover, another witness stated that she was in the check-in area close to the security check belt.

“We were in security and heard the first gunshots. I turned around, and there was a man standing with a pistol, like a small one, facing out towards the car drop-off,” the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper quoted the second witness, Alison.

In the last few days, many shootings have been happening worldwide. For instance, in Montenegro, a man started shooting people on the street. Eleven people are dead as a result of this terrible accident. The shooter is also dead; however, it is unclear whether his death is a result of the skirmish with the police or a suicide.  

Additionally, in Israel, seven people were injured as a result of the fire on a bus started by an unknown man. Unfortunately, the suspect managed to escape from the crime scene before the police got there.

Furthermore, four people are victims, and two are injured after the shooting in a shopping mall in the USA in Indiana. According to various reports, the shooting was started by one of the visitors who brought a rifle with several magazines and started firing. The witnesses claim that they heard 20 to 30 gunshots.
