Michigan airport evacuated after officer injured

At a news conference in the wake of the attack, David Gelios, an FBI Special Agent in Charge, said the attacker, Amor Ftouhi, a Canadian citizen, will be charged with violence at an worldwide airport, which carries a 20-year sentence if convicted.

Shaw identified the officer who was stabbed is Lt. Jeff Neville with the Bishop International Airport police. The airport is now closed until further notice.

Authorities say a police officer injured at the airport in Flint, Michigan, was stabbed in the neck and his condition is improving. The officer has been hospitalized.

To be clear, it is in no way yet confirmed that this incident was an act of terrorism, only that the authorities are reportedly investigating whether or not it was.

In a written statement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said that one suspect is in custody in connection with this morning's stabbing, and is "being questioned by law enforcement".

The White House said Wednesday that Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert briefed President Trump on the stabbing.

Asked if the stabbing was under investigation as possible terrorism, the government official, who asked not be named, said "yes". Both officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they weren't able to publicly discuss the incident.

The stabbing sent the officer, identified as Lt. Jeff Neville, to hospital in critical condition.

Flashback: When Liberal Sites Mocked Otto Warmbier For Getting What He Deserved
President Donald Trump said on Monday that a "lot of bad things happened" to Mr Warmbier at the hands of the "brutal regime ". The Warmbier family's "objection to an autopsy was honored", the office said, and only an external examination was performed.

Flint Journal files also show Neville has been an occasional competitive eater, participating in a 2005 contest sponsored by the International Federation of Competitive Eating and later that year a police officers' doughnut-eating competition.

"There has been an incident at the airport". The municipal building remains open.

An assailant stabbed a police officer in the neck Wednesday morning at Bishop International Airport, prompting an evacuation and shutdown of the airport.

"The cop was on his hands and knees bleeding from his neck", said Brown.

"Time will tell over the next several days whether anyone had any knowledge of this, but at this time, we view him as a lone wolf attacker", he said.

Carpenter described the man in custody as appearing "blank, just totally blank".

Royal Canadian Mounted Police did not immediately return Reuters requests for comment.
