An armed man has been shot by police at Miami International Airport as thousands rush to evacuate ahead of Hurricane Irma.


The confrontation between the man and the Miami-Dade officer unfolded on Thursday night and forced the evacuation of the airport's Terminal J.

The man was allegedly armed with a knife and had been trying to get onto the roof of the terminal, ABC Miami reports.

Witnesses said it appeared the man was drunk and acting erratically. He was taken to the Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center. His condition is not yet known.

The terminal was immediately evacuated and shut down.
