    I just got the alert across my iPad. I always get nervous with anything involving an airport this time of year. I don't know why, but the day after Halloween almost always sees the terror alert ratchet up considerably.

    LAT: Gunman in custody. TSA agent was shot and there are "multiple" injuries.

    Crazy stuff. I live in L.A. and found out about this on Facebook, because a friend was in the terminal waiting for a Virgin flight to Mexico when the shots were fired. She and her friend apparently ran out a jet bridge and out onto the tarmac when they heard the shots, then hid behind a bus. Eventually some buses took them and others who had run onto the tarmac to another terminal.

    She was basically posting about it in real time.

    Her most recent post: "Send VODKA!"

    Its not that crazy for a chick posting on facebook to end up talking about drinking.

    I was really hoping this thread was about photography.

    Actor Tim Daly was being interviewed on CNN about this. Seems the first-class lounge he was in was near the shooting site.

    Also, Esquire's Charlie Pierce happened to be in LAX at the time too.
