Finally, it was a false shooting report but some things are to be clarified. “Reports of a shooting incident at LAX have been proven to be loud noises only,” the Los Angeles Police Department said. Officers conducted two sweeps of the airport, including one with K-9s late Sunday, airport police spokeswoman Alicia Hernandez said. A man dressed in a Zorro costume was detained at the airport around the same time of the panic but it was not clear whether the person in any way contributed to the chaos. There had been no gunfire or injuries but the source of the noise was not yet discovered. Around 20 flights were diverted during the 30-minute ground stop.The Los Angeles Airport was the scene of a real shooting, though, in 2013 when a gunman opened fire and killed a Transportation Security Administration officer.
