Whatever the reason, the suspect, armed with what police say was an assault rifle, opened fire in Los Angeles International Airport's Terminal 3, killing one and sending dozens scattering before he was wounded and captured.One clue to the suspect's intentions came from witnesses of the mayhem.Some said the gunmen asked people, "Hey, are you TSA?" -- the acronym for the Transportation Security Administration. If they said "no," he would move on.
Two other TSA officers were also shot, one in the leg, authorities said.
The suspected gunman was detained after being shot in the chest multiple times, according to an intelligence source briefed by Los Angeles police. As of Friday evening, he was receiving medical attention at a hospital, according to FBI Special Agent in Charge David Bowdich.
