Houston, TX - Authorities are still investigating a shooting incident at a Houston airport that left travelers running in terror.

Friday an autopsy is expected to be performed on the suspect who opened fire at terminal B inside Bush International Airport Thursday afternoon.

The results will then determine whether 29 year old Carnell Marcus Moore died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound or a bullet shot by a Homeland Security special agent.

Moore was firing into the ceiling when he was approached by the special agent and ordered to drop his gun.

Terminal B was shut down and became a crime scene for hours leaving passengers scared for their safety.

Earlier in the day, authorities say the suspect had posted on social media that he intended to commit a mass shooting.

Later officers found a handwritten note on Moore's body saying he had changed his mind and wanted to kill himself.
