Arriving at LAX off flight when people started pouring out of term 4 onto Tarmac. Security said "shots fired. Run!" Now in vehicle on taxiwy

Promised my family I wouldn't think about work during vacation. Just got the ok to break that promise. Excited and grateful for new role.

Everyone remained calm as the theater began to shake and then the shaking got stronger. We all headed to exits and down the stairs. No panic but one woman sobbing. This one was scary.

And in the event of an inflight news emergency reach for your nearest network anchor. @DavidMuir  @ScottPelley
