Stars React To Shooting at Los Angeles LAX Airport
A gunman reportedly shot and killed a TSA agent and wounded two other people at Los Angeles’ LAX airport on Friday morning. The suspect is now said to be dead. Police are trying to determine whether the gunman worked at the airport. Security has evacuated at least one terminal of the airport, and all flights have been grounded.
While there’s still not a lot known about the scary incident, celebrities are taking to Twitter to react to the news as it develops. James Franco posted an Instagram photo (right) that shows him staring out a plane window on the airport’s tarmac. “At #lax Some s**tbag shot up the place,” the actor wrote. Check out what stars are saying about the incident below, and come back for updates.
Currently waiting on the plane in a remote parking area. I am safe. Praying for the victims of this shooting.
