LOS ANGELES (AP) - A gunman armed with a semi-automatic rifle opened fire at the Los Angeles airport Friday, killing a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) employee and wounding two others.
Tim Kauffman, a spokesman for the American Federation of Government Employees in Washington, confirmed Friday that a TSA officer was killed.
The attack frightened passengers across the bustling airport and disrupted flights nationwide.
Police said the unidentified suspect, who was apparently injured following an exchange of gunfire with officers, was in custody.
