    Officials: Passenger Who Made Threat Shot

    A passenger who claimed to have a bomb in a carry-on bag was shot by a federal air marshal Wednesday on a jetway connected to an American Airlines plane that had arrived from Colombia, officials said.

    The passenger's condition was not immediately disclosed. A witness said the man frantically ran down the aisle and a woman with him said he was mentally ill.

    Homeland Security Department spokesman Brian Doyle said after the plane had parked at the gate, a passenger indicated there was a bomb in the bag. The passenger was confronted by air marshals but ran off the plane, Doyle said.

    A team of air marshals pursued and ordered the passenger to get on the ground. The passenger did not comply and was shot when apparently reaching into the bag, Doyle said.

    Passenger Mary Gardner told WTVJ in Miami that the man ran down the aisle from the rear of the plane. "He was frantic, his arms flailing in the air," she said. She said a woman followed, shouting, "My husband! My husband!"

    Gardner said she heard the woman say her husband was bipolar and had not had his medication.

    The plane, Flight 924, had just arrived from Medellin, Colombia, and was headed on to Orlando.

    Airport and Miami-Dade County police officials said they had no immediate comment. American Airlines officials confirmed the shooting was on a jetway.

    "All I know is that it was on the jet bridge, outside the aircraft," American spokesman Tim Wagner said. "I don't know yet if the passenger had been on the plane and was getting off, or was starting to board the aircraft."

    Flight 924 arrived at Miami airport at 12:16 p.m. Eastern and was scheduled to depart at 2:18 p.m., Wagner said. He said the shooting happened shortly after 2 p.m., suggesting passengers may have already been preparing to depart for Orlando.

    Martin Gonzalez, spokesman for Colombia's civil aviation agency, said the flight "left normally with no problems."

    Note to crazy fuckers-

    If you act stupid or crazy, you run the risk of "dying of your injuries" from U.S. Air Marshalls. You should not fuck around on a plane and we will show no prejudice to your condition(s). We don't care. You will be fucking shot. That is all.

    That should be the official statement.

    A shame for sure, especially if he truly suffered from mental illness. But, I don't fault the marshals one bit, at least based on the minimal information available right now.

    I agree, if the guy had mental problems and the wife knew he didn't take his medicine, why the fuck did they get on the plane.

    It's good to know that the marshalls are not afraid to act on something like this. Hindisght is 20/20 and this guy was not a real threat, but they can't second guess themsleves in that situation. What if they did heistate and this guy DID have a bomb and it killed everyone on that plane? Then everyone would be cryin that they didn't act fast enough.

    Bottom line, like Seen said, just don't fuck around on a plane period. And if you or a loved one has mental issue, make DAMN sure the attendants know ahead of time and make sure that the person takes their medicine or STAY OFF THE PLANE.

    Actually, I'm a bit surprised that the news reports I've heard have focused on the fact that the air marshalls worked - they did their job.

    I think there is a chance that reaction will be what it should be - it's too bad, but you don't fuck around with air security. Of course, the guy wasn't black, so no need for Jesse to get involved and stir it up...
