LAX Shooting Latest, Prepping for Superstorms—THE EDGE Brought to you by America's Natural Gas

November 1, 2013

TODAY IN ONE PARAGRAPH: A TSA agent was killed today in a shooting at Los Angeles's primary airport. The lone gunman involved in the shooting has reportedly been taken into custody. His condition remains unknown. Seven people were treated for incident-related injuries, six of whom were taken to the hospital. Some flights were diverted from the airport, which is experiencing major delays. Elsewhere, the leader of the Pakistani Taliban was killed by a U.S. drone strike, according to reports from Pakistan's intelligence service. And the end of daylight saving time is upon us this weekend, offering an extra hour between Saturday night and Sunday morning.*


LAX SHOOTING LATEST: TSA AGENT DEAD, SUSPECT IN CUSTODY: A gunman opened fire in with a semiautomatic rifle at the L.A. airport, killing at least one and wounding more than a dozen others before being shot by police. Motives are currently unclear, but the shooter is not believed to have been a TSA employee, despite earlier media reports suggesting otherwise. A live blog on the Los Angeles Times' site is chronicling the latest updates. (LA Times)

DRONE STRIKE BELIEVED TO KILL PAKISTANI TALIBAN CHIEF: Pakistani intelligence say a U.S. drone killed Hakimullah Mehsud, the leader of the Pakistani Taliban. His death could be seen as a boon to the covert CIA program at a time when it is facing a surge of scrutiny due to reports of civilian deaths. (NYT)
