Illinois native among those wounded in LAX attack

LAKE FOREST – A Lake Forest native was among those wounded in a shooting at Los Angeles International Airport.

Relatives say 29-year-old Brian Ludmer, originally from Lake Forest, was shot in the leg during Friday’s attack by a gunman who appeared to be targeting TSA agents.

Ludmer lives in the Los Angeles area and is a technical director for high school theater programs. He is a graduate of Lake Forest High School and the University of Illinois.

A cousin, Tim Flaherty, told local media that Ludmer was in “OK condition” after surgery on Friday afternoon.

He said Ludmer was shot while waiting to board a flight to Boston for a family wedding.
