By Associated Press

POSTED:



LOS ANGELES >> Authorities say the ticketing area of a terminal at Los Angeles International Airport was partially evacuated after a man said he had a bomb in his bag.

Airport police Sgt. Belinda Nettles says there was no actual threat and travelers and employees have been 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.

The man has been taken to a hospital for a 72-hour mental health evaluation.

Terminal 7 is home to United Airlines and United Express.
