Part of Los Angeles airport evacuated after shooting scare

29 August 2016, 09:43

Los Angeles - Police say no gunman has been found and no shots were fired at Los Angeles International Airport after reports of an active shooter brought a scare to hundreds of travellers.

Los Angeles police spokesperson Andy Neiman said on Sunday night that the reports were spurred by loud noises only, and police are still investigating to find the source of them.

The reports caused people to pour on to sidewalks and out on to the tarmac at the airport.

Later, people could be seen walking back into the airport and flights starting to take off again.

Earlier, police said they were searching the terminals and social media posts showed many people fleeing the airport buildings.

Scores of people could be seen running from the terminal out on to the sidewalks and streets. Many other evacuees were standing on the airport tarmac.

Airport police say traffic to the terminal area had been closed.
