NEW ORLEANS - Normal travel procedures continue at Louis Armstrong International in New Orleans according to airport officials.

It comes after a city cab driver armed with a machete and a can of wasp spray attacked TSA agents around 8p.m. Friday night. He was shot by a Jefferson Parish deputy shortly after the attack in the security area near Concourse B that mainly services Southwest Airline.

Some travelers today describe the incident as frightening and disturbing, but many say it would not deter them from their travels and visiting the city.

The suspect, 63-year-old Richard White was brought to a local hospital and undergoing surgery early Saturday morning after he was shot three times. There is no update on his current condition.
