Production on "Mad Men" was suspended on Friday, Nov. 4 following the shooting at LAX, according to tweets from a crew member.
A rep for AMC confirmed "Mad Men" crew was shooting at the airport, but could not provide any other additional details. According to key grip Dustin Woods, "Mad Men" was filming at American Airlines, Terminal 4, and was told to move to the far end of the tunnel for safety following the shooting.
The tweets have since been deleted, but Woods said "Police K-9 unit going through AA arrival terminal right now. Should be getting the all clear shortly" and "We got the ok to leave but Police have not given the all clear."
Stars of Discovery's "MythBusters" were in LAX at the time of the shooting.
"'Mythbusters' Grant Imahara and Tory Belleci were present in Terminal 3 at Los Angeles International Airport at the time of today's shooting incident. Both were en route to Delaware for the filming of 'Punkin Chunkin'. Grant and Tory are safe and being rerouted. Our thoughts are with all those affected by today's tragedy and our gratitude goes out to the members of the LAPD, Airport Police, TSA, and Virgin America staff for restoring safety to the scene," Discovery said in a statement.
Stay tuned for more updates. h/t Michael Schneider.

Ciancia Was Loner In High School
Paul Ciancia, the 23-year-old former New Jersey resident who has been identified by the FBI as the suspected LAX gunman, was a loner at the private high school he attended in Delaware, a former schoolmate told the Los Angeles Times.
“In four years, I never heard a word out of his mouth,” said David Hamilton, who graduated with Ciancia from Salesianum School in Willmington, Del., in 2008, and is now an editorial assitant at a publishing firm in Philadelphia. “He kept to himself and ate lunch alone a lot. I really don’t remember any one person who was close to him.”
