Looks like it was on both sides. They interviewed a guy that said it started just before the check point and they showed photos of bloody clothing and a weapon on the ground and it looked like it was actually at a gate.

With the way TSA treat the general public on a daily basis, this was bound to happen sooner or later.

I've seen some rumors that it may have been an off-duty TSA agent as well that would pin this as an workplace violence issue, instead of a citizen that just finally snapped.

They just asked that question at the news conference and the police chief said they did not know if the suspect was a TSA agent or not.

Guess we'll just have to wait and see how it all plays out and what is brought to light. Seems like a premeditated and target specific thing thus far.

I wonder if this has something to do with the past events at LAX.

Did you hear the one that said something along the lines of "I didn't see the gun, but it sounds like a .22 or a 30-06"?
