Man shot at airport
after attacking guards
A 63-year-old man was shot Friday at a security checkpoint in the New Orleans International Airport after he cut a guard with a machete and sprayed two others with wasp spray.
Richard White had been confronted by one of the guards, Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand said at a news conference outside the airport.
White responded by spraying the guard with wasp spray, then struck a female officer with a machete, cutting her right arm, Normand said.
Normand said White was transferred to a hospital but was "unresponsive." - AP
