Law enforcement officers have responded to reports of an armed man at Florida’s Orlando International Airport Tuesday evening, prompting the closure of Terminal A, according to The Orlando Sentinel.

Contrary to other media reports, the Orlando Police Department tweeted that there was no active shooter, and that no shots have been fired. The individual is currently in talks with a crisis negotiator, according to OPD.
Roads leading up to the airport have been closed and the Florida Highway Patrol is reportedly telling people to stay away from the area.
According to a Reuters report, the airport serves about 42.6 million passengers a year and operates with 35 commercial airlines.
