Los Angeles (CNN) — A gunman concealing an assault rifle walked up to a Los Angeles International Airport checkpoint and opened fire on a TSA agent Friday morning, but when the gunman passed the security point, he was shot and wounded by a police officer, a former ranking Los Angeles Police Department officer who was at the scene told CNN.
The gunfire sent travelers into a stampede, passengers said.
A total of 10 shots were fired, and two people — the gunman and the Transportation Security Administration agent — were wounded and taken to local hospitals, an intelligence source told CNN. Their conditions weren’t immediately available.
It was unclear in the immediate aftermath whether there were other suspects.
