A TSA agent is dead and two others were wounded when a gunman opened fire at Los Angeles International Airport Friday morning.

It happened at Terminal 3 near a security checkpoint.  Police say a man dressed in fatigues pulled out a semi-automatic weapon and started firing. The suspect has been identified as a 23-year-old man from New Jersey who wrote a rant about killing TSA workers.

The incident grounded all traffic at one of the busiest airports in the world. That backed up air travelers, including here in North Texas.

Denny Kelly is a leading aviation and airport security expert.  He joined New 8s Marie Saavedra at our Victory Park studios to talk about how something like this could have happened.
