Planes are now flying in and out of the Los Angeles International Airport after a shooting grounded all operations for hours on Friday.
Officials say shortly after 6 a.m. (HST), a 23-year-old man opened fire in Terminal 3 of the airport.
According to officials, he was wearing fatigues and carrying a bag with a note saying he wanted to kill the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
A Hawaii woman was at the airport at the time of the shooting and describes the mayhem that ensued.
"The SWAT team just came in super fast with their guns and everything then they just started yelling, 'Everybody run!'" said Brooke Dombroski, who resides on Oahu. "it was just a mass hysteria people were crying, falling over, getting trampled and just basically running to the unknown because we had to go outside. But we didn't know what was happening outside."
A TSA officer was killed and two other people were wounded.
The shooter was taken into custody.
