One Tree Hill star, Stephen Colletti, had a traumatizing afternoon when shots rang out inside Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston— which happened to be where the actor was traveling.

Reports are emerging that a man shot himself at a ticket counter after firing into the air with an assault rifle. The shooter, who is reportedly dead, was then taken to an area hospital— but not before scaring fellow travelers.

Hayden Panettiere's ex-boyfriend tweeted about hearing the shots.

He continued to explain that everyone froze after the initial gunshots, and when more were heard, travelers panicked and ran in every direction with chaos ensuing.

Stephen, who played Chase Adams on the hit CW show, then ended up hiding inside the kitchen of an airport McDonald's.

He adds:

At this time, the airport remains on lockdown with flights grounded.
