LOS ANGELES (AP) - A gunman armed with a semi-automatic rifle opened fire at the Los Angeles airport Friday, wounding a Transportation Security Administration employee and two others. 

The attack frightened passengers across the bustling airport and disrupted flights nationwide.

LAPD Assistant Chief Earl Paysinger said the TSA employee was injured and transported to the hospital.

Paysinger says the suspect was armed with a semi-automatic rifle. He was apparently also injured when he exchanged gunfire, though it's unclear what his condition is.
