A gunman reportedly just opened fire inside a terminal at LAX -- and "MythBusters" stars Grant Imahara and Tory Belleci were in the danger zone.

The shooting reportedly occurred around 9:30 AM in Terminal 3. According to reports, a TSA agent was shot at a checkpoint. The suspect was reportedly shot by police and taken into custody.

So far, no reports of other victims.

People inside the terminal were evacuated onto the tarmac -- including Belleci and Imahara -- and Belleci tweeted a photo of the mayhem.

1101-lax-twitter-shootingHe writes, "Shooters in #LAX That was f***ing terrifying! ... Heard gun shots then everyone starting running for the door." Belleci says he and others now being shuttled away from the terminal.

Imahara tweeted, "I was in the Virgin lounge upstairs. Saw everyone pour out of the terminal onto the tarmac. Then I heard shots fired outside ... Virgin promptly locked the lounge doors. About ten minutes later, LAPD armed with automatic weapons arrived to secure the area."

We just spoke on the phone with Tory ... who described the chaos.

If the shooter is white, then he'll have mental issues; but if he's not white, he'll be a terrorist.

Maybe he freaked because he didn't want to take his shoes, socks, belt, and underwear, off.

They need to hire more Black people. Black Folk are definitely good at spotting Shady looking characters and overall danger. If you see a Black person start running like crazy.....you better be right behind them with your knees up to your chest.
