A crisis negotiator spoke with the suspect, police said on their verified Twitter account before the man was detained.

A portion of Orlando International Airport was placed on lockdown after a man pointed a gun at an officer.

Earlier this year an Alaska man killed five people inside a baggage claim area at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

No one was injured and no shots were fired during the incident, which occurred in the rental auto area of one of the country's busiest airports, police said. No shots fired. Suspect is contained.

Officers responded to a call about a weapon in the Terminal A rental vehicle area at around 7:40 p.m.

Twenty years on, she's back in the role for Victoria and Abdul , which releases in United Kingdom cinemas from 15th September. The film also starring Eddie Izzard, Tim Pigott-Smith and Adeel Akhtar, is scheduled to release on September 22.

Terminal A was eventually closed, but the other side of the airport, Terminal B, remained open during the stand-off. Orlando police repeatedly reiterated on social media that the man is contained, but has not been arrested.

Employees had been told to shelter behind the desk of the business, he said. "Contain situation and bring to a peaceful resolution, which we did", the police department tweeted. "You couldn't have a better resolution".

Some flights were delayed during the ordeal, but airport operations were returning to normal late Tuesday night.

Images posted on social media showed a heavy police presence in the area and passengers were anxious about missing flights.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the airport is still an "active scene" and all roads to the airport were shut down, with "zero exceptions". Officers then determined it was fake, the police chief said.
