The Los Angeles TV stations are all over the fatal shooting at LAX. The KTLA homepage leads with live video, a witness talking about how the police initially handcuffed him, thinking he was a suspect. “It was definitely chaos,” he says.
You see and hear the word “chaos” repeatedly on the LA sites.
A TSA officer died in the shooting at Terminal 3, and others were wounded. The suspect is in custody.
A click from the KABC home page brings live video; it was “Air7″ helicopter footage of dormant runways when I checked it out. “Very little activity outside of law enforcement,” said the anchor.
