A shooting at Los Angeles International Airport prompted a heavy police response and the evacuation of Terminal 3.

According to CBS Los Angeles, a person reportedly carrying a high-powered rifle was shot and secured by authorities.

A law enforcement source told CBS News senior correspondent John Miller that the suspect entered the terminal wearing military-like clothing and opened fire.

Aerial video showed what appeared to be a Transportation Security Administration employee being wheeled away into an ambulance by police.

Several people were seen being treated by emergency responders outside the terminal but it’s unclear if they are gunshot victims.

Passenger Robert Perez told CBS Los Angeles that TSA agents came through the terminal and yelled that a man had a gun.

“I heard popping and everybody dropped to the ground,” Perez said.
