The TSA released a statement about the incident, according to WKYC.
"TSA has lost a member of its family today to a fatal shooting at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. Our employee, whose name is being temporarily withheld, had worked for the TSA since 2011 as a baggage officer. She was fatally shot at the airport in what the police are calling a domestic dispute. Our thoughts and condolences go out to her family, friends and fellow employees during this painful time."
The parking lot is located along Interstate 480 and is not located near passenger areas of the airport. It is primarily used by employees.
