A TSA agent shot Friday at the Los Angeles International Airport is dead, according to an intelligence source briefed by Los Angeles police and a federal source.
In the hours before the death was revealed by that source, the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center said it received three male victims from Los Angeles International Airport. One arrived in critical condition, and two were listed in fair condition.
It started when a gunman concealing an assault rifle walked up to a Los Angeles International Airport checkpoint, and opened fire on that TSA agent. Supposedly, when the gunman passed the security point, he was shot and wounded by a police officer.
Passengers told CNN that the gunfire sent travelers into a stampede. A total of 10 shots were fired.
It was unclear in the immediate aftermath whether there were other suspects.
