Good news, world: today’s emergency situation and evacuation at Los Angeles International Airport, originally feared to be a shooting, has been revealed as little more than a false alarm.
Bad news, Zorro impersonators worldwide: a naive soul who thought he could get away with donning a mask and a plastic sword at an American airport in 2016 was caught up in that ungodly commotion.
A witness caught the moment the man in black was detained by the cops, after rampant rumours on social media claimed an “unidentified noise” was actually the sound of gunfire.
