Shooting erupted at Los Angeles International Airport Friday morning when an unidentified gunman opened fire and killed a TSA agent. The shooting allegedly took place at a passenger screening checkpoint inside the terminal. Several other workers were injured in the shooting.
The man was reportedly armed with a rifle and the motive for the crime is now being investigated. The suspect was wearing camouflage and opened fire at 9:30am and early reports suggest that he was targeting the TSA employees.
