The Bachelor/Bachelorette host Chris Harrison was aboard an American Airlines flight Friday morning that was preparing to depart LAX when a shooting occurred in the terminal next door.
The 42-year-old sprang into action, playing reporter on his Twitter account with a first hand account of what was going down:
“Something crazy going on at LAX right now. Terminals shut down & cops w guns drawn.”
“TSA just shut the doors in lockdown. Shooting over at Terminal 3.”
“Police very polite but guns drawn & very serious about clearing the streets on the top level of LAX. Everybody very calm & respectful.”
“Incredible response by LAPD & airport authority. This place was locked tight w precision quickly. God bless first responders! thought & prayers w the victims.”
“I was in Terminal 4 AA airlines and must’ve been one of the last flights that made it out this morning before the airport was closed.”
At least Chris made it out of LAX and on his way. Tom Bergeron, James Franco and Nick Jonas are all stranded either aboard aircrafts or on the ground at the airport as of Friday afternoon.
