MI airport evacuated after police officer injured

The officer, Lt. Jeff Neville was stabbed in the neck, by Ftouhi, and was critically injured but has now been upgraded to satisfactory condition.

"Neville got him to stop stabbing him".

He says authorities have no indication at this time that Ftouhi was involved in a "wider plot", but the investigation is in its early stages.

Police Chief Tim Johnson has asked mass transit officials to be on notice for any further potential incidents.

Police dogs search cars in a parking lot at Bishop International Airport, Wednesday morning, June 21, 2017, in Flint, Mich. Officials evacuated the airport Wednesday, where a witness said he saw an officer.

- Soon after: Neville, despite his wounds, subdues Ftouhi with help from other officers, and Ftouhi is taken into custody. "Lt. Neville fought him right until the end - right until I was able to handcuff this person", Bishop International Airport Director of Public Safety Christopher Miller said.

In the United States, an attack attributed to anger over politics seriously wounded top Republican congressman Steve Scalise week, when a rifle-wielding critic of President Donald Trump opened fire on lawmakers practicing for a charity baseball game.

Mayor Karen Weaver said in a release Wednesday "the situation is under control" but officials sought to take "extra precautions" in light of the Wednesday morning incident at Bishop International Airport. State police troopers, along with ATF agents, are also at the airport investigating.

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement any attack on law enforcement officers will be prosecuted "to the fullest extent of the law".

Ftouhi legally entered the United States in Lake Champlain, New York on June 16th, Gelios said.

Witnesses describe seeing a man led away in handcuffs by police and the airport officer bleeding from his neck.

A spokesperson for the Canadian Embassy in Washington said the Canadian government and law enforcement agencies are "engaged and are cooperating fully" with their American counterparts.

Shaw said Neville had retired from the Genesee County Sheriff's Department as a lieutenant.

The FBI is investigating how he entered the country and said that Canadian investigators are working cooperatively on the case across the border. Officials increased security at Flint City Hall, including additional police officers, in "an abundance of caution", the statement said.
