    There's not a lot of info so far. Reports are three people being treated for gunshot wounds.
    Someone supposedly started firing with a high powered rifle.
    I've heard different reports, one said possibly two suspects are being sought.

    Latest report is lone suspect in custody. 3 gunshot victims at UCLA Med Ctr.
    Supposedly this guy got out of his car at a drop-off and entered the building with a high powered rifle and began shooting. He was quickly shot by a LAX police officer and taken into custody. No word yet if the suspect was killed.

    One TSA agent killed. 7 injured, 6 transported to area hospitals.
    Hearing the shooter was wearing full camo.

    Hearing now that the shooter was possibly a TSA employee, targeting other TSA employees.
    They're keeping hush-hush, I think, because there are families to notify.

    No offense but this is another race to get on the air first, accuracy and facts be dammed.

    Yup. Seems like every news source wants to be the first to get the story out. I'm sure when the facts finally come out, we'll see how much was pure speculation.

    Possibly another "evil black rifle" at work here

    I wonder how many of today's "facts" will be retracted tomorrow.

    I'm still in the work truck listening to the news, there are STILL people sitting in planes on the tarmac :eek:
    I'd be pissed.

    DUN24 Skeptical of the Spectacle.

    Insane.... What drives these people to go so off the deep end?

    Also insane is the medias obsession with covering the story first. One of only a few problems with the Internet age.

    Long as it stays like this, you might be counting awhile.

    It's difficult, if not impossible, to understand why people do these things. Mental instability is difficult for those afflicted and for those that are adversely affected.
