NBC’s Lester Holt Told: ‘Shots Fired, Run’ at LAX Airport (UPDATED)


Los Angeles International Airport appeared to be in a state of panic after reports of an active shooter circulated. Police are investigating the scene, though video that’s been posted on Twitter shows a chaotic scene as investigators try to make sense of the situation.

UPDATE – 12:34 a.m. ET: Details are still coming in from LAX, with certain indicators suggesting that a shooting has not yet been determined, and that it might have been a false alarm.

Lester Holt followed up his original tweet with a new status report:

At least one terminal has been evacuated, and around the airport has reportedly been brought to a halt. CBS reports that the LAPD heard from two callers reporting a shooting, but again, they haven’t made a confirmation yet.

The LA Airport PD Twitter page says that police are still addressing the emergency.

UPDATE – 1:00 a.m. ET: The LAPD says that the shots that rang out were actually just “loud noises.”
