Dallas police say a domestic disturbance at Dallas Love Field airport has resulted in an officer-involved shooting of a man.

On a video posted on Instagram more then eight shots can be heard being fired. There are also sounds of a woman screaming and officers yelling "stand down" over and over.

Dallas Assistance Chief of Police Randall Blankenbaker said the incident began with a dispute between a man and a woman in the passenger unloading area of the airport, which is a hub for Southwest Airlines and located inside Dallas city limits.

The man is believed to be the father of the woman's children, Blankenbaker said. The man attacked the woman's car with a rock, breaking the side and rear window.

Blankenbaker said a police officer was in the area and responded. The man rushed the officer with the rock, and the two grappled. The officer was able to separate himself and fired on the man when he charged again.

Traveler Lucinda Fonseca told WFAA-TV that she and her husband were coming out of the baggage claim area when they saw police approaching the man throwing rocks and one of the officers drew a gun. "The man was yelling at the cops, basically saying 'shoot me shoot me, I dare you,' something to that effect," Fonseca said.

The man was shot multiple times and was taken to a local hospital. His condition is not known at this time.

The incident sparked long delays at the airport. Many of the passengers had to be rescreened for security.
