WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Airports in the Washington area operating as usual after a shooting Friday morning at Los Angeles International Airport.

WNEW’s Kevin Rincon said there was an increased security presence at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport immediately following the shooting, but that since has calmed down. Flights are arriving and departing the airport as usual, but some arriving flights are delayed.
