TSA agent killed, 6 wounded in Los Angeles airport shooting

Mayhem at LAX on Friday. That's how one passenger described the scene at Los Angeles International Airport after a gunman opened fire with an assault rifle near a security checkpoint. The suspect killed a TSA agent and wounded at least six other people, before police shot him and took him into custody. (SOUNDBITE) (English) JOSE MARES SAYING: "I was in the corner and I was looking at the guy just shooting randomly, like I saw a TSA go down." (SOUNDBITE) (Engliah) MIRIAM RODRIGUEZ SAYING: "The gunshot sounded so close to us. So we were just trying to get out of there and not be inside." It happened at 9:20 am local time in Terminal 3. The area was quickly evacuated, flights were halted or diverted, and nearby streets were shut down. Aerial footage showed emergency responders setting up a triage area outside. Trauma surgeons at Harbor UCLA Medical Center treated some of the wounded included the one casualty. SOUNDBITE: DR.
