A transportation security administration agent dies after a gunman opens fire inside Los Angeles International Airport.

Officials say the gunman opened fire near a security checkpoint Friday morning, forcing a terminal evacuation.

At least two others were wounded.

Initial reports indicate the gunman approached a document checker, then pulled a firearm and fired at the security officer.

Law enforcement officials swarmed the airport and set up a medical triage area outside the terminal.

Traffic entering the airport by road was also stopped.

Flights have been grounded at LAX.
