LAX shooter attacks TSA agents with an ‘assault rifle,’ one dead

While details are still coming in, a gunman has been shot after pulling out an semi-automatic rifle to open fire on TSA agents at LAX in Los Angeles, California.

Police said a suspect was shot and wounded inside the terminal and taken into custody shortly after the gunfire erupted, MyFoxLA.com reported. The LAPD bomb squad conducted a sweep in both Terminal 2 and 3 and now report he was the lone shooter.

A former Los Angeles Police Department ranking officer gave this account of Friday morning’s shooting to CNN, citing discussions with investigators: The shooter walked to the security checkpoint, pulled out a concealed rifle (described by the media as an “assault rifle”) and shot the TSA agent; the shooter then went through the checkpoint, and a police officer shot the shooter. The source arrived at the scene shortly after the incident.

CNN and other sources now report that three patients arrived at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, one in critical condition who later was pronounced dead.

Almost every flight out of Los Angeles International Airport on Friday will be “significantly late,” according to Gina Marie Lindsay, executive director of Los Angeles World Airports.

A law enforcement source tells Fox News that the suspect may be a former or current TSA employee.
