Police are responding to a report that a Transportation Security Administration agent was shot at Los Angeles International Airport. A suspect is now in custody, according to a source. Here are the latest details:
Ten shots were fired, the source said. There were roughly 100 witnesses, all of whom are being interviewed.
The airport's post also said there are "multiple victims." Earlier, a law enforcement source close to the investigation told CNN that a suspect was shot and is in police custody.
“I was actually at Gate 30, just walking towards the food court. … I heard a couple of popping noises. I (turned) to look. ... There was a stampede of people coming my way and I realized something was … wrong.”
“People were screaming, ‘Run into the bathroom, get behind something,’ ” he said.
He picked up his carry-on bags, ran down a corridor, came upon the point-of-no return spot (where if you leave, you can’t get back without going through security again). The guard there didn’t appear to immediately know what was going on because he was telling people they couldn't return if they left.
Police then came and told everybody to get down on the floor. They then told everyone to go outside, and police eventually escorted them to the international terminal.

"All of a sudden we heard people screaming, 'Go, go, go!' and I heard a couple of pops that sounded like gunfire," she said. "People were just running, so we left everything on the ground and we took off."
"People were running and people getting knocked down. There was luggage everywhere," Neumann told CNN. "Mayhem is the best I can describe it."
Several police officers moved about the airport with guns drawn, he said.

Multiple shots from a rifle were fired in quick succession, and it's not clear whether the shooter breached the security checkpoint, the source said.
It later sent another tweet: "Other than arriving flights, flight operations have been temporarily held."
The area around the airport was jammed with cars as police shut down access to the airport.
A ground stop means flights destined for the airport are held at their departure point, according to the FAA.
"I heard a popping sound, and everybody was diving for cover," Perez told the station. "The TSA said there was a shooting in the terminal and evacuate the building."
At least 100 people came down a staircase. "Everybody started to panic," Perez said.
The passengers were directed to board a bus and were taken to a smaller terminal, he told the affiliate.
Police earlier said evacuations are under way at the airport after reports of shots fired there.
