A 50-year-old Surfers Paradise man is facing bomb hoax, assault and stalking charges after an alleged domestic violence incident resulted in the emergency evacuation of Brisbane Airport's international terminal last night.

Witnesses reported seeing a man with a knife and hearing shots just after 8:30pm but police said there were no reported injuries.

Police decided to evacuate the airport after finding what they believed to be a suspicious device.

Officers negotiated with a man before firing beanbag rounds to resolve the situation.

Superintendent Tony Fleming said the rounds struck the man in the torso.

"He's been examined by [paramedics], he has no significant injuries," he said.

The man has since been taken to the Brisbane watch house, where he was charged this morning with staging a bomb hoax, making a false statement, assault, contravening a domestic violence order, stalking and stealing.

He is due to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court tomorrow.

The incident caused major disruption at the airport precinct as it was shut down and trains to the terminal were halted.

Police said there was no evidence to suggest the incident was terrorism-related.

"It's my understanding that the man approached a woman, that woman was known to the man," Superintendent Fleming said.

"There was some communication there and then he spoke with another female and it's at this point that circumstances deteriorated."
