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.

Such a shocking, horrific incident. For some reason, I've always felt really safe in airports because of all the security. I hope the shooter recovers so authorities can find out what he was planning on doing if he made it past security. Just imagine if there was a group of them .... (shudder). So much for the 'safety in numbers' theory (shootings at malls, schools, movie theatres, airports, etc.). Just SAD.

Did anyone see the gray haired lady who looked like Paula Deen running out the front door within camera view? This is terrible, I hate to see people in such fear and panic. What a shame there are so many mentally screwed up people wanting to hurt others.

Unfortunate yes – but you brain washed Americans just won’t learn! You bring these situations on yourselves! It will get worse… guaranteed! Get rid of the ego and the frikin’ guns! Your society is crumbling quickly!

We live in crazy dangerous world and I I don't see it getting any better in the future. The airport security we are forced to go through is all for show, it's to make the average traveler feel safe. In order to stop real terrorist or crazy people like today we need the same tough tight security in airports like Russia or Israel where they will shoot a threat on the spot. Our TSA agents are usually overweight middle age women who can barely speak English.
