An LAPD bomb squad responded to Los Angeles International Airport Tuesday night after the FBI received a statement regarding a bomb threat, authorities said.
The FBI initially alerted airport police about 7:30 p.m. regarding the threat, which affected Terminal 2, according to a statement from LAX spokeswoman Karla Ortiz.
The threat was received by telephone, Lourdes Ochoa with the FBI told KTLA.
A bomb squad from the Los Angeles Police Department was sent to the airport, while a command post was established on the airport’s lower levels between terminals 1 and 2, Ortiz said.
The terminal was not evacuated.
The scene was cleared after nothing was found, Ochoa said.
