The Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport was evacuated on Monday after a verbal security threat.
Here’s the statement from the JMAA:
The Jackson Municipal Airport Authority (JMAA) reports receiving a verbal security threat today at its primary airport, Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International (JAN).
As is customary, this incident was reported immediately to the United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which took the step of evacuating passengers and employees at JAN out of an abundance of caution.
Further information may be available later from the TSA and other relevant agencies as this incident unfolds.
In a further announcement by TSA, they are looking for two individuals connected to the threat. The suspects left the scene immediately after.
No arrests have been made at this point.
