You will be safe to travel through LAX but today's cancellation will undoubtably disrupt scheduling. 

CBC reports: 

The gunman was secured by law enforcement personnel around 9:30 a.m. local time, according to CBS2′s Mike Case, and was reported by CNN to be in police custody.
Within an hour, the situation seemed to be under control, with no suggestion of further gunfire. A triage area outside the airport, with three coloured mats laid out for wounded people, were seeing little use.
Terminal 3 was evacuated and cordoned off, and arrival and departure roads to the airport, in addition to Century Boulevard, were closed. Outbound flights were cancelled, an airport spokesman said.
