    Officials: Passenger killed after claiming to have bomb
    Wednesday, December 7, 2005; Posted: 4:27 p.m. EST (21:27 GMT)

    MIAMI, Florida (CNN) -- A federal air marshal shot and killed a 44-year-old U.S. citizen on a boarding bridge at Miami International Airport after he said he had a bomb, several sources familiar with the incident told CNN.

    Flight 924 was in Miami on a stopover during a flight from Medellin, Colombia, to Orlando, Florida, when the man said there was a bomb in his carry-on luggage[/], a Department of Homeland Security official said.

    He was confronted by a team of federal air marshals, who pursued the man down the boarding bridge and ordered him to get on the ground, the official said.

    When the man appeared to reach into his baggage, at least one shot was fired by the marshals, wounding the man, the official said, adding that the marshals' actions were consistent with their training. Officials said later that the man had died of his injuries.

    Upon investigation, there was no evidence that the man had a bomb, an official said.

    This is the first time an air marshal has fired a weapon on or near an airplane, a federal official said.

    Footage from the scene shows armed SWAT team members carrying rifles outside the aircraft, along with more than a dozen of police vehicles. Paramedics were standing on the stairway to the aircraft.

    The Boeing 757, which can hold about 180 passengers, was due to take off for Orlando at 2:18 p.m. ET. It had arrived in Miami at 12:16 p.m. ET, according to the airline's Web site. No other flights at Miami International were disrupted Wednesday, an airport official said.

    As a voice of the right, I would say this shit is fucking wrong. I bet all the liberals are all screaming right now about how right this is. Bullshit. So what the guy was screaming he had a bomb? He went through customs etc, so obviusly that wasn't true and the plane wasn't even in flight or taking off. From what I understand they were boarding and dude freaked...how many 2 year old babies do the same shit?

    I heard on a news report that he was reaching in a bag or something like that, thats when the air marshall shot him.
    Anyway, , just like the dude on the London tube, that bag story will probably fold up like origami later in the investigation.

    his wife told the air marshalls that he was bi polar and had no medication. passengers said they heard nothing about a bomb from him, but he was acting like a kook. if indeed he did say he had a bomb, and i was an air marshall, i would put rounds in him. sounds like that dudes wife should have made sure he had medicine.
