TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A man will be charged after he allegedly had a gun at a TSA checkpoint, which led to the evacuation of Airside F at Tampa International Airport on Friday night, according to officials.

A departing passenger was found with a firearm in his belongings just before 8 p.m., officials said.

Airport officials said all passengers in Airside F were evacuated so airport police could do a precautionary security sweep. Passengers were re-screened and normal operations resumed at about 9:45 p.m.

The man, who has not been publicly named, will be charged for allegedly possessing a weapon in the terminal and tampering with evidence after he allegedly moved the weapon, officials said.
