LOS ANGELES (AP) — 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.

Police said the unidentified suspect, who was apparently injured following an exchange of gunfire with officers, was in custody.
