CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A checkpoint at the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport was temporarily shut down on Thursday morning after airport officials say there was a “security concern.”

According to airport spokesperson Lee Davis, there was a security concern at one of the checkpoints on Thursday morning.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) says the incident happened around 10:30 a.m. Thursday morning.

“A passenger at Charlotte Douglas International Airport left the checkpoint prior to the completion of the screening process,” TSA officials told WBTV.

The incident resulted in that checkpoint being temporarily shut down as the TSA investigated.

According to the TSA and airport officials, the checkpoints re-opened after about six minutes and normal operations resumed.
