(Grapevine, Texas-AP) -- A security breach today has forced the evacuation of three terminals at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

A security official says a man bolted through as he was being processed at a passenger checkpoint.

He says agents tried to detain the man, but "he just kept going."

Officials shut down three terminals and evacuated the people -- who will not be re-screened.

DFW is the country's third busiest airport and is home to the nation's largest carrier -- American Airlines.
