A man in a Zorro costume strolled thru LAX right before the shutdown



You might have heard Los Angeles International Airport was shut down Sunday night over reports of an active shooter. That turned out be a false alarm.

The truth turned out to be even stranger. A man dressed as Zorro, complete with a fake sword, was found strolling through Terminal 7 right before the alarms went off. 

Police didn't identify the man, who says he dresses as Zorro often on Hollywood Boulevard.

He didn't cause any damage, but the panic did delay almost 300 flights, KTLA reports

This is pretty much our reaction.

It turns out the reports came in because someone in LAX heard a "loud noise."

New York's governor (legally) killed a shark. Environmentalists are still pissed
