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:



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.”



Flights heading for Los Angeles, which had not yet taken off, were held at their gates by the Federal Aviation Administration. Others in the air — including three JetBlue flights from the East Coast — diverted to other airports.

Flight tracking site FlightAware.com said that as of 11 a.m. Pacific there were 12 flight cancelations and 132 flight delays in Los Angeles.

Travelers hoping to fly out are unable to reach Los Angeles airport because of road closures.

    clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend
    to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or tips? Appreciate it!
