False reports of active shooter at Las Vegas airport cause delays

A "loud noise" led to false reports of an active shooter on Sunday morning at Las Vegas' Harry Reid International Airport, causing flight delays and cancellations.

Fifty-three flights have been canceled and 322 delayed at the Las Vegas airport, according to the flight tracker FlightAware.

The loud noise, which Las Vegas police said was caused by an "unruly subject" now in custody, led to a panic, according to the airport's Twitter account.

Some people rushed through security checkpoints, meaning passengers had to return to checkpoints to be re-screened before boarding their planes.

The airport warned that delays are expected to continue throughout the day.

Airport officials and Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said a loud noise in Terminal 1 around 4:30 a.m. led to panic, with people thinking they had heard gunshots.

There is no threat at the airport. A loud noise has caused panic at Harry Reid International Airport this morning, and created a security incident.
