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.

The guy filming this is an idiot. I know you guys have no shame, but really this is low even for TMZ :( The guy's a douche (Telling people to chill?) Some poor lady lost her life and this dumbass is proud of getting a video of people running scared for their lives. What an *******

Anyone can make a video like this - next time you're in Tokyo airport, just yell out Godzilla! and start running.

Really hoping you didn't actually pay this douchecanoe for his **** video. Even if he would've stfu, it would've sucked, but it would've been a little more tolerable.

1. The guy who shot this sounds like a moron.
2. There's an American Airlines commercial playing before the video.

Seems like the guy recording it is giddy with delight - you'd think he'd be more concerned, and if he wasn't he could have at least helped some of the elderly people.or women with children... Please TMZ, say you didn't pay this guy much of anything.

NEWS FLASH!!! For everyone leaving comments. You may not like the guy for recording this video or TMZ for releasing it. Go look in the mirror because it got all of us here looking at it and commenting on it. So! All the name calling really reflects on yourself. LOL! I'm sure his video will help a lot in this case. It will help assist in the investigation. It could be something major or simple in this video that could be of use.

He's yelling "chill" because he doesn't want people to get hurt. Then when he saw the Cop's reaction, he knew they had to get out of there. I hate seeing this, though. Wish they didn't have to experience that.

Hmm, a shooting in CA with an 'assault weapon'. That can't be, CA has an assault weapon ban. How's that working out for ya!? Maybe it was CA compliant.

When recording something you KNOW will be all over the news and internet, "chill" with all the curse words.
