The FBI responded to the scene along with local law enforcement, an FBI spokesman said. The man with the machete was identified as Richard White, a taxi driver, airport officials said in a press conference.

The TSA agent fired three shots, one of which grazed a bystander. Two other people received minor injuries fleeing the scene.  An officer said a suspect has been taken away from the scene, and would not comment on that person’s condition.
