Do we know the gunman/woman (or men/women?) is apprehended yet?

Yes; and they were shot.

Los Angeles (CNN) -- A suspect has been shot and is in police custody after Friday's shooting at Los Angeles International Airport, a law enforcement source close to the investigation tells CNN's Miguel Marquez.
A person with a firearm at the airport approached a checkpoint at Terminal 3 and opened fire Friday morning at a Transportation Security Administration agent, a former Los Angeles Police Department ranking officer who was at the scene told CNN.
Reports of gunfire Friday morning prompted evacuations of portions of LAX and led to a "ground stop" for arriving planes, said police and the Federal Aviation Administration.
Airport officials said a police incident began about 9:30 a.m. at Terminal 3 at LAX, airport spokeswoman Nancy Suey Castles said.

Mythbusters live tweeted the whole thing. They was in the lounge upstairs. Looks like the shooter is down and they are evacuating.

Apparently the shooter's leg wound consisted of multiple bullets in the chest. That's the worst kind of leg wound there is.

The shooter and I attended the same high school, but he graduated 10 years after me.

Re: LAX Shooting 11/1/13

Has anyone mentioned that Tracer Bullet and the suspect went to the same high school? Albeit 10 years apart. Hmm...

Based on a sample size of 2, I would say that High School produces graduates that are batshit crazy.
