LOS ANGELES (CBS SF) –  A gunman went on a shooting rampage Friday at Los Angeles International Airport Friday, killing a Transportation Security Administration agent and injuring several other people, police said.

Multiple sources say the alleged gunman, who was believed to be working alone, has been identified as 23-year-old Paul Anthony Ciancia of Pennsville, New Jersey, according to CBS Los Angeles. Ciancia was apparently injured following an exchange of gunfire with officers and was in custody.

On Friday night, the TSA identified the victim as 39-year-old Gerardo I. Hernandez. He is the first TSA officer to be killed in the line of duty in the agency’s 12-year history.

At least six other people were injured and treated at the scene. Five of them were taken to local hospitals, officials said.

San Francisco International Airport spokesman Doug Yakel said Virgin America flights from LAX to SFO will likely be delayed since Virgin America operates from LAX Terminal 3.

At Oakland International Airport, some Southwest Airlines flights have also been canceled or delayed, airport spokesman Brian Kidd said.
