Queensland Police took the man into custody after reportedly shooting and wounding him.

“Police are currently conducting clearance searches of the International Terminal.

“No reported injuries to any members of the public or police.

“The Australian Federal Police is managing the incident and we hope to get back to normal operations as soon as possible.”

“The International Airport has been evacuated and trains have currently been stopped.

“The Australian Federal Police are in attendance in conjunction with Queensland Police.

Nowhere is this more evident than in the hotel space. Once upon a time, the city’s hotels mirrored those of any other big – but not Big – city: the standard luxury set, as defined by the Hiltons and Four Seasons of the world, and a middle set of affordable, basic accommodations that stood somewhere between hotel and motel.
