    There are alarms sounding and a police helicopter overhead. People all over the tarmac, getting too close to the planes, being ushered back

    In other news, 2 people were murdered in this country between 11am-12pm. Most likely with a candlestick, in the conservatory, by Mrs. Peacock.

    ABC News says "Several people shot"
    Sounds like at security checkpoint. Not sure if terminal 1 or 3

    We went through customs a few weeks ago at LAX. It is such a cluster***k. The lines are so long, the hand out these express tickets (bright orange) to let you go through a special, shorter line. They were running so behind that they had us literally run through customs. No inspection, no dogs, nothing. :shocked:

    Pure speculation here, but I find it odd someone would enter a place with as much police presence as LAX to randomly open fire. They say one of the injured was a TSA agent. That makes me wonder if someone was trying to get a weapon on a plane and was in the process of being caught.

    Understaffed...give them more funding and a larger workforce and they will get the job done in a more effective and efficient manner!

    CNN reporter says shooter had an assault rifle so it is a pretty safe bet there was not an assault rifle involved.

    I know you posted this before knowing a TSA officer was killed doing their job. So just mentioning this before you get blasted.

    Not sure how a rifle gets all the way to security.

    Sound like a "simple" case of workplace violence. TSA or ex-employee upset about something. Of course if your workplace is the airport, there is nothing simple about dealing with the situation.

    It was an off duty TSA officer doing the shooting. Crazy.
