One man was shot by police Friday afternoon at Dallas Love Field airport. Police say the situation started out as a domestic disturbance call between a man and a woman. 

Police told press a man was throwing rocks at a car and when police tried to stop him, he threatened an officer with one of the rocks. The man was eventually shot by officers.
