LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say the ticketing area of a terminal at Los Angeles International Airport was partially evacuated after a man told a ticketing agent he had a bomb in his bag.
Airport police Sgt. Belinda Nettles says there was no actual threat and travelers and employees are being allowed back inside Terminal 7 Thursday morning.
The man was taken into custody around 7:45 a.m. and police set up a perimeter as people were ordered to leave the ticketing area.
No bomb was found and people were allowed back in about an hour later.
Terminal 7 is home to United Airlines and United Express.
