Jay Trammell was texting his friend who said it was so chaotic, it looked like a scene out of a movie. Trammell's friend was just arriving at L.A.X. when he was told to turn around. Around that same time, the mayor of L.A. was telling people to stay away from the airport.
"They just said everything was hectic, so,everything was hectic and they were trying to figure out their flights. You know you kind of worry for them and you kind of worry for anybody traveling," said Trammell.
Guillermo Serrano's a traveling salesman. We met him as he watched the t.v. news coverage. Serrano's been flying out of L.A.X. for years.
"You kind of feel weird, but you gotta travel anyway, so," said Serrano.
Serrano says late mornings tend to be busy at L.A.X. and he can only imagine how chaotic things got when shots rang out in terminal three.
"I'm sure it was crowded and a lot of people was affected, so I definitely feel for them," said Serrano.
But Serrano's thoughts weren't on himself today. His concern was for a friend of his who's supposed to travel to L.A.X. tonight.
"Uh, he was kind of concerned, yes. I'm sure he is, I would be too," said Serrano
Mitchell International officials tell us it's too early to say whether any changes will be made following the L.A.X. shooting. There were no plans for Mitchell's staff to meet Friday to discuss what happened two thousand miles away, but passengers hope Milwaukee officials will closely monitor the situation.
"It's not carefree, you always have to worry that something might happen, so, very frightening," said Camille Telford.
