tense stand off with police at Orlando Airport on Tuesday. Authorities rushed in on reports of a man armed with a hand gun which turned out not to be real. No shots were fired and 26 year old suspect Michael Pettigrew surrendered after nearly two hours of negotiations while provoking officers to kill him.
>> The subject made several comments, pointed the firearm at the officers, said, shoot me, shoot me. Actually pointed the gun at his head, imploring the officers to shoot him. Officers were able to get him to drop the weapon. From that point, he was in this area, he lay down on the ground, with the gun very close by to him.
>> Pettigrew faces one count of aggravated assault for pointing the fake gun at officers. Police say he was formerly in the military, and will be kept in custody for a mental health evaluation.
