Los Angeles airport halts flights, passengers ‘self-evacuate’ over ‘firearm’ scare (VIDEOS)

Airport staff received reports about a “person with a firearm” in one of LAX’s terminals around 7:30pm local time on Thursday, the airport said in a statement, adding that around 300 passengers “self-evacuated” from the terminal onto the airfield after learning of a possible threat.

While LAX offered few other details about the suspect, it said that airport police “responded and detained one person for further investigation,” and that “there were no shots fired and no weapons recovered.” 

It is unclear why the person was detained or whether any charges have been filed, but the “security incident” nonetheless prompted Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) officials to initiate a ground stop for all flights out of LAX.
