6 People Injured And 1 Dead In LAX Airport Shooting.

A gunman with an assault rifle opened fire in a crowded terminal at Los Angeles International Airport Friday, killing a TSA employee and injuring at least six before being wounded and taken into custody. The shooting suspect was identified by Associated Press, citing law enforcement officials, as Paul Ciancia, 23. I am deeply saddened to inform you that a TSA employee was shot and killed today on duty at Los Angeles International Airport," said TSA administrator John Pistole in a message to employees.
"Other TSA employees also were injured in the shooting." "The gunman is in custody and we are working with local law enforcement to help insure the safety of our employees," he said. Officials said seven people were injured , including six who were transported to area hospitals. Two male victims are in fair condition and one is in critical condition at Ronald Reagan Medical Center. Officials said the gunman pulled an assault rifle out of a bag on the ground floor of the terminal and opened fire. He ran up an escalator to a TSA screening area and continued to fire, officials say. He was tracked by airport police and they engaged in gunfight until the suspect was subdued, officials said.
