Man Commits Suicide at Houston Airport

HOUSTON (KPRC) - The man who shot and killed himself at Bush Intercontinental Airport has been identified as Carnell Marcus Moore of Beaumont, Texas.

Sources told NBC affiliate KPRC that Moore, 29, had an AR-15 assault rifle and also had some kind of note with him at 1:35 p.m. Thursday when he entered Bush Intercontinental Airport.

Police sources said Moore walked in before the security checkpoint, fired a shot into the ceiling and then allegedly shot himself.

The incident happened near the ticketing counter in the pre-screening area of Terminal B of the busy airport.

Moore's Facebook page remained online Thursday with two recent postings: "This Life Will Crash Tomorrow!" and "I recently had the chance of staring death in the face, and she was beautiful." The most recent said: "45 minutes and 59 seconds in God's Shadow and Time Stops."
