Dallas Love Field Airport Shooting on Video

Shooting at Love Field Airport, Dallas, TX July 25, 2022

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)-– On July 25, 2022, a woman with a history of mental problems entered Love Field Airport in Dallas, Texas, a little after 11 a.m. After a short time, she fired shots and was shot by a Dallas police officer within a few seconds.

From the time stamp on a body camera, Portia Odufua entered Love Field Airport in Dallas at about 11 a.m. on July 25, 2022. A short time later, she was firing rounds from a handgun into the ceiling as she was reported to be making statements about marriage and saying she would blow up the airport.

Dallas police have released a video of the event.

Odufua entered the airport with her left hand in the pocket of her hoodie/sweatshirt. She then entered a restroom. When she came out, both hands were in her pocket.

As she approached the ticket counter area, she has her right hand in her pocket. There is no audio in the video. She has been reported to make statements just before pulling what appears to be a semi-automatic handgun and firing shots above her head at about 2:20 in the video.

At this point, a Dallas police officer was approaching and was a few yards away from her. At the shots, he backpedals a few feet while drawing his pistol and seeking cover behind a Kiosk. He returns fire in about five seconds.

Ms. Odufua is down on the floor within about 9 seconds of the first shot, at about 2:29 in the video. Fox News has reported Odufua was prohibited from possessing firearms because of her history.  From fox4kdfw:

Police say Odufuwa has been prohibited from owning a firearm since 2018 because of a prior criminal history that includes arrests for bank robbery, arson and false reporting. 

Online court records show some of the cases were dismissed, and Odufuwa was found incompetent to stand trial. She also has a history of mental health evaluations following arrests.

Police say in 2016 Odufuwa was denied the purchase of a firearm twice at a Balch Springs pawn shop due to an outstanding traffic warrant.

This event demonstrates the advantage of an armed defender being inside the event instead of responding to a call and having to travel to the event from another location.

The officer, in this case, acted quickly, firing at the threat in about five seconds. He appears to have been alerted to Odufuwa before she started firing.

Jack Wilson in the White Settlement Church incident, was inside the scene when it occurred. Jack responded in seconds with an accurate shot that stopped the killing.

Eli Dicken, at the recent Greenwood Park Mall event, was at the food court and able to stop the killing in about 15 seconds.

In all three of these events, defenders who were on the scene stopped the violence in a few seconds. This contrasts sharply with the situation in Uvalde, Texas, where poorly led and confused police milled around for 77 minutes, unable to determine who was in charge.

They finally engaged the killer after 21 people, including 19 children, had been killed.

No armed defender was inside the scene at Uvalde. Some arrived reasonably quickly and then retreated.

Nothing can take the place of a good man with a gun, who is at the scene and willing to act immediately to stop the threat.

The contrast between Uvalde, where 21 were killed, and White Settlement, the Greenwood Park Mall, and Love Airport, where two, three, or no one was killed, was a good guy with a gun who was willing to use it.

Had she been “white” they would’ve said. Since she was of another persuasion, she was just a mentally disturbed individual.

In the airport it was fortunate that the unhinged woman fired only into the air.

The backround of this crazy shooter shows that she should have been locked up in a nut house years ago, yet she was allowed to walk the streets of Texas.

As a professional Firearms instructor with decades of exspearince. Having taught Military, Federal, state, county, local law enforcement and many, civilian, shooters. I call it he 90,7,3 percent rule. 90 percent of gun owners don’t real care much how they shoot just owning a firearm is enough for them. 7 percent care more and practice to maintain their skill and or improve it. 3 percent are the gun guys they shoot and shoot a lot. They live and eat firearms or there job requires them to maintain high levels of firearm handling skills. Elite military and police units, competition shooters… Read more »

if it is your job proficiency should be required . a 22 year old kid did better

The Crimson Pirate

It has been my experience that most cops don’t even know what they are carrying, let alone how to use it. I have had an on duty cop have to lift the bottom of his holster up so he could see the side of his gun to look for the brand and model when asked.

Knute Knute

The 90, 7, and 3 percent rule applies to everybody. Military, police, and civilians all. 90 percent think that just having a firearm is all that they need. This is why Glocks were purchased by so many police departments around the world. Not because they’re so good, but because it was the quickest and easiest to train for, when transitioning to autoloaders after abandoning the double action revolver. Training has costs, and the slower the training, the greater the cost. It’s a budget issue, not a quality issue. For my money, knowing that 90 percent could care less what’s in… Read more »

they went to glock because it takes to long to reload a revolver when they miss with six ,city of miami cops shot a homeless man “who had a gun” he had a transistor radio ….three officers 40 rounds fired only three hit the guy ..bigger laugh police kept looking for the gun found “it” under a parked car…problem was news cameras showed car was not there during shooting

Russn8r

Good: Lightwt, no ‘safety’. Bad: 2 big 2 CC in DemCom zones: Calizuela/The Big A-hole/Chiraq. Need easy in-out of pox.

OpeTEX sock posse DV’d 5x in 1 min. Paints himself brave for carrying in “gun free” zones, fails to disclose ex(?)-cop privilege

Never before have I seen such an ongoing surge in mass shooter incidents as when the Commiecrat Party is stumping for gun control. And… Commiefornia says they’re literally banning ALL firearms (as retaliation for the Bruen and Caetano decisions)!!

Whenever Dems are losing the narrative, they need a false flag attack to gain the upper hand. For 20+ years now, this has been their M.O., but now they’re accelerating it because they’re behind schedule in their destroy-America agenda!

musicman44mag

Yep, I always think of the Las Vegas mass murder that was committed by a organized force, not one man. That killed reciprocity for all states. They have learned that it works well so they stick with it.

StLPro2A

Most mass shooters, a few may be luck of the nut draw, have prior contact and are known to law enforcement, especially the Alphabet Boys. How better to identify, befriend, nurture, warehouse, and nudge into action at the appropriate time…..in groups for maximum impact, leading to a HR1808 passage.

Henry Bowman

Absolutely. If HR1808 gets through the Senate, 95% of guns will instantly be declared contraband. Their next bill, MARK MY WORDS, will be to ban “Sniper-Class weapons”! And beyond that, well, just look at Australia & England to see what comes after!

Great job Dallas PD ! This Police Officer was already tracking this nut before she started shooting. This DPD cop probably saved many lives by being the absolute professional that he is.

Russn8r

Great job, Dallas PD!

I’ll sooner trust a fellow citizen with a gun than I would with the cowardly men & women in blue.In this instance there was a ‘good cop’, but this is not the norm. Too many “just follow orders”.

Russn8r

Perfect. OpeTEX didn’t like it.

Russn8r

Not surprising the good cop was Border Patrol.

Knute Knute

What I read said that she entered the airport at 11 AM and fired the shots into the ceiling at 2:20 PM. This timeline shows that she was wandering around the airport for almost 3 and a half hours before taking action. Now, I don’t wish to disparage the officer involved… but isn’t noticing someone loitering around for hours in an area that he is responsible for protecting, that officer’s job? IMO, we should commend him only for doing his job, in these days when so few LEOs do, than for being exceptional. The sad part is, he WAS the… Read more »

Knute,I can’t explain the timeline on this. According to video and witness accounts she entered the airport at 10:59 AM then went to a restroom and changed clothes. She immediately walked out to the ticket area and started shooting into the ceiling. Maybe Dean can help out on this because something is really screwed up with that timeline.

Ope

Dean,thanks so much for the clarification.

Knute Knute

Thx for clearing that up. So now perhaps the officer involved WAS clearly exceptional.
But let’s not forget that the system still had multiple chances to interdict this problem individual, but chose not to do so. IMO, the boos and jeers for a system that looks the other way because it’s easier than actually investigating, are still valid.

Russn8r

See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRJ91nRbtg0
Despite DPD self-stroking, it’s no more heroic than what armed civilians would do if our rights were honored. Unlike Uvalde, he was already in the room. 1st instinct was run away – understandable for Dallas PD since it wasn’t a harmless guy calling for help like Tony Timpa or a hairstylist bucking Cuck Abbott’s lockdown. But he quickly overcame his fear despite his DPD culture, got cover, returned fire. Happy ending, unlike Timpa’s.

Criminal with intent to kill with a history as a felon had a gun image that. Evil women willing to kill glad she is dead one less to worry about. “ATF is doing a great job of keeping guns out of the hands of criminals” I Think Not !!!! Texas keep bussing those illegals to DC keep them moving so should the rest of the country send those illegals to DC . Washington DC calling for the National Guard Meanwhile President Pelosi travels to Asia & the Navy sending a carrier group to protect her while China threatens to burn… Read more »

Not so; they have NO trouble killing people who are NOT a threat!

Officer OpeTEX don’t like that.

Lava

That last box should say,
“…but they will not hurt you if—” and succinctly describe a really poor handling of an actual shooter.

John,I’m sorry she lived too but hopefully that might change.

3%er

Dean,I’m sorry to hear that. It’s still very possible Ms Odufua’s condition could go south quickly. I’m sure that the tax payers of Texas as well as banks,airports in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex area would be pleased.

hippybiker

They should have let it bleed out!

Henry Bowman

Hard agree! That’s what LAPD did with the 2nd gunman in the North Hollywood shootout back in ’97. They called it in by radio, but everyone slow-walked the response. I cannot tell you how many taxpayer dollars were saved!

Arny

Yeah keep bussing them into the USA. Do you think they stay in DC ? Abbott is helping the Dems voting block, if it matters ? Not to mention how much this is costing tax payers, NATIONWIDE. SO YEAH THANKS FOR NOTHING !
