Darn those white-supremacist conservatives and their mass-murdering ways!
The woman survived and is under arrest.
The woman, identified as Portia Odufuwa, entered the airport at about 10:59 a.m. local time and went to a restroom, police said. She exited the bathroom wearing different clothing and fired three shots into the air, Garcia said. She then pointed her weapon at a bystander and an officer, who subsequently returned fire. An investigation later determined that Odufuwa had fired her weapon at the officer.
Aha! Gun control would have stopped this!
The gun used in the shooting was not registered to the suspect, who, according to police, has been prohibited from possessing a firearm since 2018. It is not clear how she obtained the firearm.
Garcia added that the suspect tried twice in 2016 to purchase a firearm from a pawn shop but was denied because of an outstanding traffic warrant in New Mexico.
Police also confirmed she had several prior interactions with law enforcement, including a 2019 arrest for an alleged bank robbery in Wylie, Texas, a 2019 arrest for alleged arson and a 2020 apprehension after which she was transported for a mental health evaluation.
It's almost like criminals can obtain guns regardless of the law, especially since we have a porous border with drugs and weapons flowing like rivers into our cities (thanks, Biden!). It would also be nice if leaders didn't keep releasing violent criminals like a lady who committed bank robbery and arson!
Do ya think she purposely chose a gun-free zone?
Police said that witnesses heard the woman rambling about a marriage, incarceration and blowing up the airport before she began shooting.
Sounds like she took an Uber to a place she thought she would have defenseless victims and found out the hard way.
Thank God there was an officer right there… this time.
