Exclusive Video

Panic and chaos erupted after a gunman opened fire at L.A. International Airport ... and the commotion was all captured on CELL PHONE VIDEO obtained by TMZ.

A bystander recorded the scene ... seconds after hearing gunfire on the upper level of Terminal 3.

Passengers arriving at the Terminal 3 baggage claim were ordered to stay in the hallway until police could secure the area ... the video shows the pandemonium that occurred when they were allowed to flee.

The gunman used a semi-automatic rifle to shoot his way past a security checkpoint ... killing a TSA officer and wounding at least two others.  Police shot and wounded the gunman ... who's in custody.

It wasn't pandemonium. It was people hastily making their way out. Stop being so damned dramatic.

I humbly invite Everyone, to please pray for all our
citizens afflicted by -literally- the hourly increasing
Epidemic of Death and Destruction, which has punished our once Godly-blessed nation for over a decade.
