Oakland Airport terminal reopens following evacuation

OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- Oakland International Airport's Terminal 1 has reopened after it was evacuated Tuesday morning as deputies and crisis negotiators worked to de-escalate a situation.

The sheriff's office says a man armed with a knife was threatening to hurt himself. Officers evacuated the terminal as they worked to get the man help, they said.

The terminal was reopened around 10 a.m. The man was transported to the hospital, police say.

The airport advises travelers with flights on Alaska, Delta, Frontier and Hawaiian airlines contact the airline to see how they are impacted. The airport was filtering travelers through Terminal 2 to help them make scheduled flights, the Alameda County Sheriff's Office said.
