Terminal 3 at Los Angeles International Airport was evacuated Friday after a gunman opened fire there, killing a TSA employee and injuring two other bystanders.
CBS Los Angeles reports a man with a high-powered rifle shot a TSA employee in the leg as well as two others before he was shot and secured by police officers at roughly 9:30 a.m. local time. Terminal 3 remained closed off as of 10:10 a.m.
The TSA employee died of his wounds, reports ABC News.
At a press conference roughly two hours after the shooting, law enforcement officials refused to identify the shooter or the status of any of the victims.
“This investigation is ongoing. I’m going to give you very few facts today,” said David Bowdich, the special agent in charge with the FBI, which is taking the lead on the investigation.
“At this point, we do not see any additional threats at the airport,” he added.
The suspect began shooting at a TSA screening area in Terminal 3. He was able to get beyond the screening area into the actual airport, where he made it as far as a Burger King restaurant there, said Patrick Gannon, chief of the airport police.
Gannon did not know if the shooter is or ever was a federal employee. Some media outlets reported the shooter had some previous connection with the TSA.
“As we stand here right now,” he said, “there is only one individual who was responsible for this, as we know, as the active shooter.”
Airport police trained for a similar scenario less than two weeks prior. Gannon and L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti lauded the airport police who actively engaged the shooter, eventually subduing and arresting him.
Arrival and departure roads to the airport were closed, CBS reports. Aerial footage showed buses transporting disembarked passengers onto the tarmac.

Eye witnesses tell ABC News a man walked through the terminal dressed all in black and carrying a military-style assault rifle. He stopped and asked people if they worked for the TSA, one witness said.
The airport serves the greater Los Angeles area, which is the second-most populated area in the U.S. LAX is the sixth-busiest airport in the world, according to its website.
