Teacher shot at Los Angeles airport upgraded to good condition

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Officials say a high school teacher wounded at Los Angeles International Airport has been upgraded to good condition.

Officials at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center said Monday that Brian Ludmer has to undergo at least one more surgery on his leg and extensive physical therapy, but his condition was upgraded from fair to good.

Ludmer was shot Friday during the attack that authorities say was carried out by a 23-year-old Paul Ciancia over a grudge against the Transportation Security Administration.

TSA Officer Gerardo I. Hernandez was killed in the shooting.

Operations at the airport were back to normal Monday, the first business day since the attack.
