LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — More than 1,500 flights have been affected by the shooting at Los Angeles International Airport. Bay Area travelers should check the status of their flights before heading to the airport.

Nancy Castles, a spokeswoman for the airport, said Saturday that more than 250,000 passengers were impacted.
Friday, killing a Transportation Security Administration agent and injuring several other people, police said.

Of those, 724 were scheduled arrivals with an estimated 67,850 passengers and 826 were departures with an estimated 99,200 passengers on board.

Terminal 3 remains closed Saturday as the investigation into Friday’s shooting continues. Parking structure 3 is open, however.

A gunman opened fire in the terminal, killing one TSA agent. Five other people were hurt, including two TSA workers and the alleged gunman.

Flights are once more arriving and departing from LAX, but airlines are cautioning passengers that they may experience delays and should check their flight status before heading to the airport.
