LAX terminal evacuated after 'suspicious package' found as bomb squad on scene

AN LAX terminal was evacuated after a "suspicious" package was found.

A bomb squad was reportedly on the scene alongside police on Friday morning.

Passengers were evacuated from Terminal 2 as an investigation into the suspicious package took place.

Authorities closed the roadway for the upper departure levels and diverted drop-off traffic to lower levels.

Many travelers were hoping to set off for July 4 celebrations today, but will instead be experiencing delays.

Footage at the scene showed dozens of passengers waiting outside of Terminal 2.

Many others are reportedly being told to wait at Terminal 3 by airport police.

Shortly after the airport was evacuated, the suspicious item was given the all-clear.

Airline staff and TSA were first allowed back into the building, before passengers could continue their travels.
