Transcript: LAFD acting Chief Jim Featherstone’s press briefing remarks on the fatal shooting in LAX

Partial transcript of the 11:45 a.m. press conference:

Good morning. Jim Featherstone. F-E-A-T-H-E-R-S-T-O-N-E.

At this time, the LAFD has treated 7 patients, transported 6 to area hospitals. We have approximately 100 firefighters committed to this incident.

As Chief [Patrick] Gannon said, this initially started somewhere around 9:20 a.m. At 9:28 a.m., the first LAFD resources were on scene.

In terms of a more heightened awareness and coordinated effort citywide, the city’s emergency operations center has been activated at Level 1 – has been for well over 2 hours now. So the city is standing tall, leaning forward to deal with any associated issues that happen outside of the actual LAX property.
