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.

I heard he was a TSA employee with an AR15. I heard he wasn't a TSA employee. Apparently one thing that is clear is he was English speaking. Too bad Kanye wasn't there. He could have bitched the guy out.

New reports surfaced that the shooter was none other then Tori Belleci... They were cracking the myth that the u.s. is totally screwed due to most of its citizens being mentally deranged.

Another TSA Agent flipping out proving why Gun Free Zones are nothing more then a neon sign that reads "COME TO GET US" In big green and red flashing / Scrolling letters. The first one thought he was god and now this one probably got to excited he got to touch other peoples children inappropriately instead of just his own so he snapped thinking target practice might calm him down a bit.

"Some times my daddy lets me play with his gun, Im a very good shooter" In the voice of Rain man.

Course the Medoa will spin it and say guns need to be banned even though at the air port they are or they won't say anything at all so they don't take the tarp off the Neon sign they work so hard to protect so when we are finally in the REAL Global crisis they want to see we can't do anything until it's to late.

Thank you Maine Stream Media and FOX news for helping our enemies do such a great job at killing us all.

Tori and grant are real lucky for they could have also wound up added to the shooters hit list. and then there would have been two less myth busters. sadly. don't blame tori for still being shaken up after a tragedy like this
