Police: Houston airport gunman intent on suicide

HOUSTON (AP) — Houston police say it appears a man was bent on suicide, or what's known as suicide by cop, when he opened

fire inside a busy Houston airport terminal.

Investigators say 29-year-old Carnell Marcus

Moore of Beaumont shot himself in the head with a 40-caliber pistol

Thursday

afternoon after shooting into the ceiling at a Bush

Intercontinental Airport terminal. A homeland security agent in the

terminal

also shot and wounded him when Moore refused to drop his weapon.

Authorities said Friday that Moore had an AR-15 rifle with ammunition in a bag he was carrying. From a suicide note he left

behind, they believe he was not planning to hurt others. No one else was injured.

Moore had no criminal record. It's not immediately known where he obtained his weapons.
