    MIAMI, Florida (CNN) -- A weapon was fired on an American Airlines plane as it was on the runway at Miami International Airport on Wednesday, authorities confirmed.

    The weapon was apparently fired by a federal air marshal on board the plane, which was on a stopover during a flight from Medellin, Colombia, to Orlando, Florida, police said.

    The Boeing 757 was due to take off for Orlando at 2:18 p.m. ET.

    More soon.

    I want to know if he really had a bomb? Wonder if this was his way of commiting suicide?

    The Cnn report says the search did not find a bomb.

    It doesn't sound as if there was any time for negotiations. The passenger said the bomb was in his carry-on luggage, he was told to release the bag and hit the ground, he didn't do it. Then he reached into the bag and was told to take his hand out, he didn't do it. I don't see where there was any other choice.

    Thanks Marthatex, it will be interesting to hear if he left a suicide note.

    I was thinking today what a boring, mundane job an Air Marshall must have... 99.99999999% of the time, nothing happens and you sit, flying hour after hour... day after day, eating your little tray of airline food.

    When something like this happens, you need to be on your toes

    One of the other passengers said they heard the wife of the man shot say he had BPD, and did not take his medication this morning. Also, there's a question of did the passenger speak English.

    Still finding out facts, more info will come, I hope
