Officials are now reporting that the suspect involved in the shooting that took place at LAX earlier this morning has been taken into custody.

LAX confirmed this moments ago on Twitter, saying:

A ground stop has been put into place, meaning no flights are going in or coming out and law enforcement is currently blocking roadways into the airport.

Passengers have been being evacuated by bus for the past hour or so.

The White House has confirmed that President Barack Obama is currently being briefed on the shooting.

TSA spokesman Nico Melendez also confirmed that one TSA officer was shot, but he was not able to provide any further detail on the identity of the officer or the extent of the injury.

    Too bad California so seldom uses the death penalty, even though it is still legal, this guy would be a perfect candidate.
