LOS ANGELES — An unattended suitcase prompted the evacuation Sunday of part of a terminal at Los Angeles International Airport, authorities said.
The Los Angeles Police Department bomb squad was notified about 5 p.m. of a suspicious suitcase in the upper level of Terminal 3, said Officer Don Cox, a police spokesman.
Only the upper level of the terminal, for departing flights, was evacuated, Cox said. The lower level arrival area and all other terminals continued to operate normally, he said.
“They’re trying to determine who it belongs to and what might be there,” said Cox. “There are no threats, they don’t have anything to indicate that it is a device.”
Several airlines operate out of Terminal 3, including: Alaska, American, Frontier, Horizon and Midwest Express.
