A man who exited his car outside a San Antonio airport and started wildly firing a handgun was killed by police Thursday.

According to police, the man had shot at cars from a highway overpass before driving to San Antonio International Airport.

The airport was placed on lockdown after a car was reported driving the wrong way on a road outside a terminal, police Chief William McManus said during a press conference. An officer stopped the car at Terminal B but the man jumped out and began shooting.

Police returned fire, hitting the man, McManus said. The man was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

No one was hurt in either incident.

“The shooter had a lot of ammunition and a big handgun that he was shooting indiscriminately toward people,” the chief said.

Chief McManus said the man, who was described as being in his 40s and with a history of mental illness, had interacted with police before. The man’s identity was not released.

Airport operations were not affected by the incident, according to the Associated Press.
