Brian Ludmer -- the Lake Forest native who was injured during a shooting at the Los Angeles International Airport on Friday -- remains hospitalized, but is doing well, according to the superintendent of the school district where Ludmer teaches.

The 29-year-old was waiting for a flight to Boston Friday morning when he suffered a gunshot wound in one of his legs from a man who opened fire inside a security checkpoint at the airport.

Ludmer was taken to a Los Angeles-area hospital and underwent surgery Friday, according Dan Stepenosky, who leads the Las Virgenes Unified School District in Calabasas, Calif.

Stepenosky said Ludmer's brother and mother arrived at the hospital around 9:30 p.m. Friday. He said it is likely Ludmer will need another surgery Monday.

For the past 18 months, Ludmer has worked as technical director at The Performing Arts Education Centers at Calabasas and Agoura high schools. His Facebook page says he is a 2002 graduate of Lake Forest High School and a 2006 graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
