NEW YORK, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 15th Augst,2016) - Unfounded reports of shots fired at New York's main airport triggered scenes of panic, massive evacuations and huge delays late Sunday. There was no immediate confirmation of injuries or arrests, but Port Authority police evacuated at least two terminals at John F.
Kennedy International Airport out of precaution. Spokesman Joe Pentangelo said Port Authority police had received an ultimately "unfounded" call of shots fired. A ground stop was in place until 12:30 am (0430 GMT) for "security" reasons, the Federal Aviation Administration said. Around that time, New York Police Department Special Operations Division Chief Harry Wedin said all terminals had been "searched & cleared.
" "All affected terminals will resume operations shortly.
No shots were fired," he added on Twitter. The Port Authority also said a preliminary investigation found no shots were fired at JFK and there were no injuries. "At this time, no gun shells or other evidence of shots fired has been found," a statement added. "The terminal was evacuated out of an abundance of caution...
There is substantial PAPD and NYPD presence at JFK and LGA. Investigation continues."
