Contrary to an earlier post based on LA Times coverage, the shooter at Los Angeles Airport was not a former TSA worker. [“A federal law enforcement official said that the gunman was a ticketed passenger entering the airport. Officials don’t believe the gunman has ever worked for TSA. Law enforcement sources had earlier told The Times the gunman was a TSA employee.”] At a press conference, Mayor Eric Garcetti said the situation is now “static”; flights are taking off and leaving the airport. Airport Chief Patrick Gannon said an individual pulled an “assault rifle” from a bag at 9:20am local time and shot an TSA Agent at the checkpoint. There are “multiple victims” and “other injuries.” He proceeded to a gate at Terminal 3 where he was engaged by airport police, shot and killed.
