3:49 pm
they have received three male patients that were injured in the shooting at lax. one they say whats in critical condition and two others are in fair condition. they say one of the injuries is not a gunshot injury. zbrrnbut she would not elaborate repeatedly cited privacy concerns around the patient. she gave us little information other than to know they were treating three patients one critically. they are all male patients but she said they were not children. that is what we know in the ucla medical center. >> we can confirm from the video that we have seen that at least of two those that were injured appear to be tsa agents because they are wearing the bright blee shirts indicative of the tsa.
3:50 pm

could change. she previously cited prief you iprivacyconcerns as to why showt willing to to share information. they are being fai careful becae of the privacy concerns. >> as this event has unfolded we have had dr. todd curtis on the phone he is a transportation contricontributor who specializn transportation security situations. zbrrnlingdr. curtis, what you ae hearing? >> what i'm hearing, well first which has been repeated by authorities. things are stable. there doesn't seem to be an active threat going on right now. they are bringing the airport back to a semblance of normal. as to the injuries or possible deaths. that is consistent with the kind
3:52 pm
of restrictions that both the medical community has when it comes to regulations over patient privacy and what law enforcement has with respect to treutrying to execute the investigation and not let out any information that will compromise the investigation. what i'm not hearing from the interviews is they are withholding information unnecessarily. we would as passengers and citizens and viewers like to get more information. zblrng thithis is one of the sis that it will have to be resolved over time, perhaps in a day or so. we'll have answers as to whether or not anyone was killed and who this alleged gun man was and whether he had an identifiable motive for doing so. >> dr. curtis, there will be plenty of time for second guessing and iff iffy if eventse there will be plenty of time for second guessing.
3:53 pm
what you hear so far does this appear to be a situation that is being held by the book. >> i would say so. what do you do when you have an attack. there was no obvious throat thrt going on. there was no heightened threat level. it was just a typical day at los angeles airport. and someone pulls out a bag and starts shooing. shoo -- shooting. the law enforcement people there took control of the situation and not only neutralized the gunman but did their best to to make sure that the people were safe. an for thand for the most part e passengers under control until they could determine whether they had information if they were under threat. some guests earlier took trust d
