    Facts are still sketchy but it appears that two people were shot at Terminal 3. There is conflicting information whether the shooter has been shot or apprehended. Terminal 3 has been evacuated, no flights are arriving or departing, there are helicopters over the airport. Traffic is backed up. There may be a second suspect.

            Early reports indicate that the shooter is in custody, and that he had gotten a weapon into the secure area. Is anyone surprised?

              Safado,
              I turned on the news as soon as I read your comment regarding LAX. It appears to be a real mess. Where are you located re terminals involved?

                    Fox news is saying the suspect is wounded and in custody with three people injured.

                        Happy,
                        I'm in an office building between LAX and the ocean so we are less than a mile from the airfiled. My office looks out over the airfield. If there were no traffic I could be at terminal three in about 5 or 6 minutes. One of my guys works right next to terminal 3 he says it is a zoo.

                          We had a similar scare at Atlanta international a while back, there was an explosion in one of the maintenance terminals. I have a friend who is a mechanic there so I was worried for his safety. It's never real until it happens in your backyard.
                          My prayers are with you, your friends and co-workers Safado.

                            You guys may have better facts than me but there were seven shooting victims six have been hospitalized leading to the obvious conclusion that there is one fatality. The lone shooter is in custody but they led someone off in handcuffs that may or may not be an accomplice. I'm not sure if all of the victims were TSA employees. There is an unconfirmed rumor that a TSA employee was killed.

                              The suspect is dead, having shot his way past the airport security screeners at Terminal 3, killing one TSA employee.
                              The shooter's weapon was photographed on the floor near Gate 36. Photos have not been released.
                              Apparently, if you try to get past airport security with a weapon in your luggage, you have a BIG problem.
                              If you try to get past airport security with a weapon in your hand, THEY have a big problem.
