The Australian federal police and Queensland police are at the airport, while airport line trains have been suspended.

The incident ended when police shot the man with a non-lethal beanbag rounds, after which he surrendered to officers.

"We understand there has been considerable disruption to Brisbane International Airport tonight, we considered it important to evacuate the airport and make sure we could render everything safe", Fleming explained.

Passengers say they witnessed the terrifying scenes of a woman being chased by a man holding a knife, sending the terminal into lockdown.

Queensland police said the incident began at around 9 pm (1100 GMT) on Saturday in the terminal's food court, when the man allegedly pulled out a knife after an argument with a woman, reportedly a family member.

Commissioner Ian Stewart told reporters yesterday the accused man had gone to "extraordinary lengths" to create a perception of "risk, threat and fear".

"There is no evidence to suggest the incident at the global airport is terrorism related; it is a domestic violence related situation", police tweeted.

Assistant Police Commissioner Peter Crawford said the man's statements led police to search a number of premises and vehicles for improvised explosive devices.
