CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

It is business as usual at the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport except maybe for heightened anxiety among travelers one day after that deadly shooting at LAX.

Immediately after the Los Angeles shooting where one person was killed and several others injured, officials at Hopkins met with the FBI, TSA and federal marshals and determined the LAX shooting was an isolated incident and nothing would change regarding security at Hopkins. 

Still many travelers, aware of the violence plaguing society know random attacks on the public victimize innocent people but many folks still opt to fly.

Some of the travelers that we spoke with said that they won't let news of the shooting deter their plans while others are not so sure.
