The first stabbing occurred around 4:45 PM when police were called to investigate an incident outside of the security checkpoint of the South Terminal. The woman then attacked another woman and an APD lieutenant, stabbing them both. The lieutenant was stabbed in the thigh and an artery was hit. The third victim was an airport ticket agent who was only nicked by the blade. All three victims were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

The perpetrator was not injured when police tackled her and took her into custody. Passengers were told to kneel in the security checkpoint line while the incident was ongoing.

Operations were cleared after about 40 minutes and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reported there were no significant delays as a result of the incident. No motive was reported and charges are pending.
Anthony’s Take: Thankfully, the woman who stabbed these three was taken into custody without further incident. Hoping that the three who were stabbed recover quickly.
