A suspicious package at Terminal 3 at Los Angles International Airport turned out to be a piece of unattended luggage, an airport spokeswoman said Thursday night.
Passengers at the lower level of the terminal were evacuated after the report came in shortly before 6 p.m. "Very few passengers" were in the terminal, LAX spokeswoman Nancy Castles said.
A Los Angeles Police Department bomb squad responded to the incident.
Castles said nearly all the lanes at the airport remained opened while police investigated the report. The incident was cleared shortly before 7 p.m.
