ORLANDO, Fla. — Police say a gunman at the Orlando International Airport has been taken into custody and that everyone is safe.

The call about an armed man came in about 7:30 p.m. and the situation was resolved nearly three hours later, after a crisis negotiator was called in to help.

The terrifying situation created confusion and uncertainty at the airport as travelers posted video and photos online of officers with their weapons drawn.

Authorities said earlier that no shots had been fired.

Law enforcement had earlier cleared the first floor, Terminal A was shut down, and traffic entering the airport were shutdown.
