A police officer shot a man Friday outside baggage claim at Dallas Love Field Airport, a witness told CNN.

The condition of the victim is not known.

The witness said it appeared the man was approaching the officer with a large rock when he was shot.

An officer told the man to "drop the rock and stop walking," but he continued to approach the officer slowly as people came through the terminal door unaware of what was happening, according to the eyewitness.

Nine shots can be heard on a video posted to Instagram. A woman is crying in the background of the video as someone screams, "Get down!"

According to the Dallas Morning News, police believe that a domestic dispute a man and a woman preceded the shooting. The officer who wounded the man was acting in self-defense after being threatened with the rock, the news website said.

The suspect was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital. A police spokesman said he believed the man was conscious while he was being transported. No officers were injured.
