Police said a suspect has been taken into custody. The airport released the following statement:

"All passengers are safe and are being evacuated at this time. Please check with your airline for potential cancellations or delays."

The FBI is leading the investigation. The Flint City Hall began operating under heightened security in an abundance of caution after the incident.

"Right now we are still awaiting more information about the situation at Bishop Airport this morning," Flint Mayor Karen Weaver said. "My thoughts and prayers are with all of our law enforcement officers who work to service and protect us each and every day. I want the public to know that several agencies are involved and working to ensure the situation is under control. However, at this time we are taking extra precautions just to be safe."

This isn't technically in the city of flint, in nearby mundy twp with flint zip code.
And yet we'll still associate the town anyway, the media loves to do that (they did that once for something that occurred in a township that is an enclave in my city, yet my city takes the blame anyway).

Would anything really change if they generalized it as even Michigan as a whole?

I think not.

This is why you shoot people that have a knife. But maybe you could have wounded them...no.

Police aren't trained for bullshit like "shoot to wound." They're generally trained to fire clusters of shots into the core of the body where vital organs are and to continue shooting until the target is neutralized. If they start shooting they're not going to stop until you're down or otherwise obviously neutralized. Since they're generally shooting toward where vital organs are, this will often result in death.

This is why don't fuck with cops.
