Nigerian Woman Went Berserk in Dallas Airport; Fired Several Rounds of Bullet
A 37-year-old Nigerian-American woman named Portia Odufuwa was taken into custody on Monday after she fired several rounds inside Dallas Love Field Airport in Texas and was shot and injured by a police officer, Naijacrawl reports.
Portia was dropped off at the airport just before 11 a.m. and appeared to change her clothes in a restroom before emerging and opening fire inside the airport, Chief Eddie Garcia of the Dallas Police Department said at a news conference on Monday afternoon.
A Dallas police officer inside the airport shot her, striking her “in the lower extremities,” and she was arrested and taken to a hospital, Chief Garcia said. Her condition was not immediately clear on Monday afternoon.
It was unclear whom or what the woman was aiming at when she fired. Chief Garcia said that the officer fired several rounds at her after she began shooting.
The Police Department said that she had fired a weapon several times in a ticket counter area of the airport.
No other injuries were reported, the police said, but the shooting sent travelers scrambling for cover and delayed several flights.
Before the airport shooting, Odufuwa had racked up a string of arrests for arson, robbery, criminal trespass and false reporting across North Texas.
In April 2021, she was accused of pulling the fire alarm at a Mesquite hotel after staffers refused to extend her stay. When police asked for her address, she allegedly gave that of musician Chris Brown’s mansion.
