    One man shot at Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport

    (CNN) -- A man suffered a gunshot wound Thursday in the pre-screening area of Terminal B at Bush Intercontinental Airport, a spokesman with the Houston, Texas, police department said.

    The victim's injuries were life-threatening, Victor Senties said.

    CNN affiliate KHOU reported a man walked into the terminal with a miltary-style semi-automatic rifle and fired two shots into the ceiling. When he was confronted by an air marshal, the man pulled out another gun and shot himself, the station said, citing witnesses in the terminal.

    This was self inflicted and no one else was injured per CNN, Fox, and other news outlets.

    I am shocked no one noticed he had a semi-automatic weapon when he walked into the airport.

    At least his shooting was in the right order. Himself first.

    Not trying to make this political, but I wonder if it had anything to do with a protest of the NRA national convention now in Houston. Just a thought, and that's all I will say about it.

    Nah, he was just crazy.

    A Beaumont man shot and killed Thursday at Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport was a reserved person of few words, neighbors said.

    But 29-year-old Carnell Marcus Moore wrote of death on his Facebook page earlier Thursday and, according to Houston police, apparently left a suicide note that said he was having trouble controlling his "monster inside."

    Moore spoke of death on his Facebook page three times since Wednesday.

    'When I go to meet God'

    The first status update was posted nearly 24 hours before he was killed. "I recently had the chance of staring death in the face, and she was beautiful," he wrote at 1:26 p.m. Wednesday.

    About 12:45 a.m. Thursday, he proclaimed that "This Life Will Crash Tomorrow!"

    And about 12:42 p.m., he posted: "45 minutes and 59 seconds in God's Shadow and Time Stops."

    His timeline also includes a video of a strained and sorrowful spoken word piece called "When I go to meet God."

    Sounds like he was probably planning to take a lot of people out and thought better of it at the last minute. I guess we can be thankful for that.
