Stephen Colletti Hiding in Freezer When Gunshots Fired at Houston Airport
Stephen Colletti was at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston when people were sent into panic after someone fired gunshots at the second floor of Terminal B. He took to Twitter to reveal how he found an unlikely place to hide when the incident happened.
"My instincts lead me to an all too familiar place of panicked decisions, the kitchen of a McDonalds," the "One Tree Hill" actor tweeted. "Trapped in McDonalds, I felt incredibly unsafe, then the walk-in freezer door swings open and a sweet little older woman waves me in. #angel."
"5 or 6 shots fired 50 feet from me in Houston Airport. Terminal B. Never seen so many people move so fast and find such nooks to hide. #woah. 2 shots rang out. Everyone froze, unsure. 10 seconds later, 3 or 4 more shots fired and people just panicked. Ran in all directions. Chaos."
The 27-year-old actor managed to give a shout-out to the law enforcement officers who closed Terminal B after the shootings took place, "Credit to the officers on scene here, the situation became calm, panic-free quickly however the terminal is still on lock down. So that's what that feels like."
Carnell Moore of Beaumont, TX was identified as the man who discharged the firearm. He reportedly fired at least two shots in the air before being confronted by a special agent of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) which office happened to be nearby.
Moore shot himself after asked by the agent to drop his weapon. He died at the scene. CBS News reported a Smith & Wesson AR15 assault weapon with a fully loaded magazine was found in his backpack and more .223 ammo for the weapon was found in his car.
Moore had allegedly posted on social media that he planned to commit a mass shooting. A handwritten note found on his body said he changed his mind and wanted to kill himself. He reportedly wrote that he had a "monster within" and wanted cops to take care of it.
