LAX Briefly Shut Down After Reports Of Unconfirmed Shooter

"Word spread quickly through the terminals by word-of-mouth, social media, and additional calls were made to Airport Police about an active shooter in other terminals, with some reporting having heard gunshots". There was no shooting and no injuries. Police at LAX also detained and questioned a man in a Zorro costume, but found no direct connection to the reports of gunfire which began at a different terminal, Officer Robert Pedregon of the airport police said.

In the NY incident this month, two people reported hearing what they thought were shots fired, law enforcement sources said then.

Throughout the event, the public and passengers were kept informed of developments, and a new wireless emergency alert system passed information to cell phone customers within five miles of the airport, Maggard said.

Airport officials said on Twitter that a person in a Zorro costume was detained.

People ran Terminal 4 onto the tarmac during the chaos.

"We were on the jetway and someone starts pushing behind us", Jon Landis, a sales representative from Boston who was boarding a flight home, told The Associated Press.

In Los Angeles, a man opened fire and shot people inside the facility in November 2013.

Another traveler - Corey Rosenbusch - told the AP he was relaxing inside a terminal club on a trip from Washington, D.C., to Sydney, Australia, when the lights went off in the area. Loud noises spurred the reports, and police are still investigating to find the source of them.

He said several officers, including some with assault rifles, led the group out of the area.
