Traveler triggers Detroit airport lockdown

AP Wire • Jul 21, 2015 at 2:33 PM

Spokesman Michael Conway says the incident happened about 9 p.m. EDT and triggered the locking of gates around the airport's McNamara Terminal. Conway says authorities found the man, took him into custody and don't believe he presents any further security risk.


Conway says the U.S. Transportation Security Administration was able to review video of the man and thinks he didn't leave any objects behind. Conway says it's believed the man failed to comply with an order to go back through security.


Conway says agents were searching the terminal as a precaution. He said the gates remained closed at 10 p.m. EDT.
