DALLAS (AP) --  1:35 p.m.  Police say an officer has shot a man outside the Dallas airport while responding to a domestic disturbance.

Assistant Dallas Police Chief Randall Blankenbaker says a man was using rocks to attack a woman in a car at Dallas Love Field on Friday afternoon when an officer responded to the incident.

Blankenbaker says the man rushed the officer. He says the officer was able to get away before he was rushed again by the man.

Blankenbaker says the officer then fired his weapon at the man several times. He says the man was taken to a local hospital, but that his condition wasn't immediately released.
