LOS ANGELES (AP) — A suspected gunman was in custody following a shooting at Los Angeles airport that killed a TSA agent and wounded two other people. This is what AP reporters on the scene Friday are learning about the events unfolding:
WAYLAYED PASSENGERS. 11:30 a.m.
Evacuated passengers were loaded onto buses by the dozens, while others decided to walk off the airport grounds.
People trailing rolling suitcases were seen on the normally quiet streets and sidewalks outside LAX.
Brian Livesay, 44, said when he arrived on a business trip from Atlanta the airport seemed unusually quiet. The film and TV production designer didn’t realize there was a problem until he saw heavily armed police on the airport beltway. He decided to walk the 3-or-so miles to the rental car facilities.
“If there was anything moving on four wheels besides a police car, I would be in a cab,” he said. “I have a room full of CBS executives waiting for me.”
