Romulus — The McNamara Terminal at Detroit Metro Airport has resumed normal operations after an equipment issue briefly shut down security screenings early Thursday.

“It was a malfunction with screening equipment,” TSA spokesman Michael McCarthy said. “Out of an abundance of caution, we halted screening operations temporarily while we reviewed the issue to determine what had taken place.”

McCarthy declined to comment further.

Screening operations at the terminal were suspended around 7:40 a.m., according to airport spokesman Brian Lassaline. Normal operations resumed at 8:07 a.m.

“We investigated a security situation related to an equipment issue at one of the checkpoints,” Lassaline said.
