False Shooter Report Sends Vegas Airport Into Chaos & Causes Delays

Harry Reid International Airport was a little more hectic than usual this morning after a false shooter report sent people scurrying and caused chaos throughout the airport. It ended up being a loud noise that caused the scare and had people scattering to get out of harms way. Luckily, no injuries were reported with the incident.

This is similar to what happened a few weeks back on the strip. A rock thrown at a casino window caused what many believed to be a gunshot sound and that spread throughout casinos like wildfire. It even caused a poker tournament to clear out at a nearby property.

It did end up causing massive lines and delays throughout the airport this morning. Our buddy Tim Greer was on site after his flight landed very early this morning. Here are a few pictures of the mess that is Harry Reid International airport right now. Be prepared for a long lines if flying into, or out of, Vegas today.

Something similar happened back in April when an e-cigarette exploded while charging in the airport terminal.

Here is some video of people just pushing through the TSA gates even though they were not sure what was going on.

The good news is the Vegas airport is safe and no one was hurt. It is just going to take some extra patience while you are there today. And Sunday is traditionally one of the busier days of departures.
