Airline passengers were sent scrambling after the shooting began, with one woman, Kristen Smith, telling The Post she was waiting at a Southwest Airlines gate with her 10-year-old son when a “crowd started running towards us and saying ‘Run’ and ‘Active shooter.’ ”
“At first, I just saw a teenage girl running and thought, ‘She’s just trying to catch a flight’ and then behind her, a whole crowd just running,” Smith said. “In the climate we are in now with all the shootings we had, people just reacted.”
