A K-9 officer (L) crosses a crime tape line on November 1, 2013 after a gunman reportedly opened fire at a security checkpointin Los Angeles International Airport. Police believe a gunman who opened fire at Los Angeles airport Friday acted alone, a police chief said, while not confirming reports that the shooter and one victim were killed. "We believe at this point that there was a lone shooter, that he acted," said Patrick Gannon, head of the LAX police force, saying he "was the only person who was armed in this incident." Seven people were injured, including six taken to hospital, said the head of the LA Fire Department James Featherstone, briefing reporters for the first time a couple of hours after the incident.
