After a heavy police response and evacuation of JFK Airport's Terminal 8, officials said there was no evidence of a shooting on Sunday night.
Police responded to New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport after reports of gunfire inside Terminal 8 around 9:30 p.m. ET. After a search and evacuation, authorities around 11 p.m. said they had not found a shooter, any evidence shots were fired, or anyone with injuries.
A law enforcement official told BuzzFeed News the call appeared to have stemmed from what was a verbal fight near terminal 8 at the airport.
A statement made during that argument generated calls about a weapon. The official said there were calls made about a shooting in the area, but said there was no evidence found that any shots were fired, including damage or casings.
