    I'm watching KTLA livestream here:

    CNN is also covering it.

    So far, they are saying that one TSA agent has been shot, but that they think there are "multiple victims".

    Still searching for the shooter (shooters?). Active situation... part of terminal one evacuated, too. This is per KTLA.

    So scary... I hope they find the shooter fast and that there is no loss of life :(

    Los Angeles (CNN) -- [Breaking news update at 1:20 p.m. Friday]

    A "ground stop" has been issued for planes scheduled to arrive at Los Angeles International Airport, the Federal Aviation Administration said Friday. A ground stop means flights destined for the affected airport are held at their departure point, according to the FAA.

    CNN reporting that gunman has been wounded along with the TSA agent that he shot. There might be other injuries.

    Glad they got him, I was just coming to post this on the Breaking News thread. Hope it was a local gang member and not a terrorist threat!

    Per FOX National:

    Gunman wrestled to ground on Tarmack and is in custody. Long gun on ground with LE standing over it.

    TSA agent shot and two other's injurred. Shep Smith THINKS they were injurred while trying to escape gun fire.

    Eight to ten shots fired, per eye witnesses. (two separate witnesses, not connected to each other)

    People are walking out of LAX, some with baggage.

    LAX air traffic shut down except for a few further runways. Think it has to do with them having limited fuel.

    LE going through parking garage.

    All incoming flights stopped at original take off point.

    ETA: some planes are now being allowed to land

    There are 4 or 5 LE helicopters hovering over airport.

    Gunman is going to be flown out? That's what the woman said?
