Another shooting at LAX just 15 mins ago.

Kejadian ini akan dijadikan agenda tambahan buat Obummer administration dalam menekan anti-gun coalition yang mulai memudar akibat kuatnya animo 2nd Amendment di US.

Terutama kejadiannya di Californistan yang sangat pro gun-ban. Dan merupakan salahsatu state dimana penerapan kepemilikan senjata api sangat ketat dibanding state lainnya.

A Transportation Security Administration agent was shot and killed and another security agent was wounded Friday when a gunman opened fire at a security checkpoint at Los Angeles International Airport, NBC News is reporting.

Initial reports indicated that a gunman approached a document checker, then pulled a firearm and fired one shot at the security officer, according to NBC News' Pete Williams. Detective Gus Villanueva of the Los Angeles Police Department said police believe they have the gunman in custody.

Officers are sweeping through the terminal to make sure there are no other gunmen, said Villanueva.

Several travelers told NBC4 they heard gunfire in Tom Bradley Terminal. A medical triage area was established outside the terminal, but details regarding the conditions of the injured victims were not immediately available.

"We were just standing there and someone started shooting," witness Nick Pugh said. "I heard a total of maybe eight or 10 shots fired."

Pugh said he saw a man believe to be the gunman being chased by officers.

"He ran across the tarmac to get away and was put on ground and cuffed," Pugh said.

The shooting was reported at about 9:20 a.m. A camera positioned above the upper level road at LAX showed travelers running from the Tom Bradley Terminal, where passengers depart and arrive for international flights.

"People freaked out," said witness Tim Daly, who reported hearing 15 rounds. "No one knew what to do."

Officers escorted people -- some in wheelchairs -- from the terminal to the triage area. Several ambulances responded to the location on the departure level.

LAPD issued a tactical alert, meaning all personnel will remain on duty until the situation has been resolved.

Roads near the airport are closed for the investigation. Some travelers exited their vehicles and began walking to the airport with their luggage.

As incoming flights land, they are subject to a ground-stop order.

The shooting comes more than 10 years after a gunman walked up to a ticket counter for Israel's national airline, El Al, at LAX, killing two and wounding four in a July 4 terrorist attack.

President Barack Obama was briefed on the situation, according to authorities.

Ternyata konfirmasi baru 1 agen TSA tewas dan 1 luka parah.
RIP for the fallen ... emoticon-rose

bakal di goreng Obama keknya nih

*eh ... salah kamar keknya nih om, pasnya di BPLN

Om nenen gitu loh emoticon-Ngakak

Maksud ane pan udah terlihat dari tanggapan ane, bahwa penembakan ini akan membuat seluruh gun-enthu dibikin kebakaran jenggot.

The point is in Firearm.

Sayangnya om garand dan om HHSam udah nyelem lagi. Kalau kagak, pasti enak tuh ngobrol lagi.

Ane di California soalnya om apalagi deket dengan tempat kerja ane, jadi pengen aja sih tukar info dengan gun-nuts laen di laen states kaya pak garandseperti dulu.

thanks for the info loh om emoticon-Smilie
Ga ada yang CC apa? Oh wait.
Salah tempat. Harusnya di BPLN. Biarpun ada senjata apinya, tapi ini 100% sipil. Urusan politik luar negeri biarlah tempatnya di BPLN.
sequelnya war on terror nih, war on small arms emoticon-Embarrassment
bantu video dari salah satu orang yang di terminal itu know something gone really bad when you see the police with their rifle.

Spoiler for vid:
Gun control? We need bullet control! I think every bullet should cost 5,000 dollars. Because if a bullet cost five thousand dollar, we wouldn't have any innocent bystanders. ---- Chris Rock

Now pertanyaanya, kenaikan gejala penembakan di US apakah ini merupakan indikasi kurangnya control senjata, atau kurangnya apresiasi terhadap pemerintah (US) teutama Obummer sekarang?

Karena kalau dipikir jaman presiden Bush dari Republican and pro Gun (yang katanya war monger) ternyata jumlah penembakan brutal ini justru hampir tidak terlihat. Kok bisa ya?
wah klo senjata di ban, ga bisa liat Big sandy lagi donk emoticon-Embarrassment
