The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) dispelled reports late Sunday night of an active shooter at the city’s international airport, LAX, which prompted dozens of people to evacuate onto the runway.

An official spokesperson for the LAPD said on Twitter that rumors of an alleged “shooting” were prompted by “loud noises,” the source of which remain under investigation.
