    From what I hear the guy was an anti-government nut job. So just your run of the mill right-wing terrorist.

    Should not have even looked at Twitter. There's already people calling this a 'hoax' and 'false flag' and some even blaming the healthcare.gov website.

    Shot three times in the chest and condition unknown? Really? The fact that he isn't already dead is crazy lucky all by itself.

    True.

    The shooter's been identified as one Paul Ciancia, 23, of New Jersey.

    I should hope the FBI is visiting all of them before they do something like this.

    A bunch of my friends were flying out of there this morning before it happened, and I think DWH is still sitting on the plane waiting for it to get to a gate so she can disembark (which has been at least 40 minutes).

    Yeah some people were evidently sitting in their planes on the tarmac for 6 hours. God.

    And from CNN's reporting everybody that was evacuated from the airport, employees and passengers, all had to be rescreened again. Not that oh, so, careful screening stopped the guy with the gun the first time.:rolleyes:

    Especially the healthcare.gov. one. That's a new one.

    To be fair, the reporting I've read indicates he shot his way through the security checkpoint.

    I'd have thought the buzzer would have gone off.

    Juliet is my flight going to be delayed? I thought of calling the airlines, but you seem more on top of things.

    The shooter started firing before getting through the checkpoint. Your statement is grossly misinformed.

    If they were already in their planes on the tarmac, wouldn't the safest thing have been for them to just take off?

    On the flip side of that, a relative of mine is an LAPD detective who was summoned to LAX for this. I believe his shift ended around 1-2am today.

    I imagine the concern would be that it wasn't the act of a lone individual, and that they might've needed to ground them or get people off the planes as quickly as possible.

    I couldn't help but notice that the thread title should be in this thread shots fired at LAX.
