A drunk man got into a traffic accident at the Mexico City International Airport and opened fire when police responded, but no one was injured in the shooting, officials said.

The man was speeding and lost control of his vehicle around 6:45 a.m. Saturday outside the airport's Terminal 2, the Federal Police said in a statement.

Officers responding to the accident were greeted by gunfire, police said.

The man ran into a nearby parking garage and tried to force two drivers to get out of their vehicles.

The suspect fired several gunshots at the Federal Police officers who gave chase, but he was finally arrested.

The drunk man was disarmed and turned over to prosecutors, who will investigate the incident and charge him. EFE
