(Reuters) – One person was killed in a shooting at the main terminal of the international airport in the Canadian city of Vancouver on Sunday, authorities said.
Vancouver International Airport previously said in a post on Twitter that it is working with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in response to reports of a police incident outside the airport's main terminal.
Twitter later said the situation had been contained.
"A man was shot dead near the departure terminal this afternoon," the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) told police on Twitter.
No further details were given, but CBC News reported that police were looking for one or more suspects in connection with the shooting.
According to CBC News, paramedics at the airport reacted and two ground units were deployed.
The airport said it was "open and safe for airport employees and those who had to travel," but recommended that passengers check with their airline for their flight status.
