LOS ANGELES (AP) â€” A gunman armed with a semi-automatic rifle opened fire at the Los Angeles International Airport, killing a Transportation Security Administration employee and wounding two other people.
Tim Kauffman, a spokesman for the American Federation of Government Employees in Washington, confirmed Friday that a TSA officer was killed.
He says the union's information comes from their local officials in Los Angeles.
The attack frightened passengers and disrupted flights nationwide.
