As Twitchy has reported, walking was the only way in or out of Los Angeles International Airport this afternoon after the airport was locked down following a shooting. Like any other taxi service, car service Uber was prevented from driving up to the airport, but it did offer free rides for those who were able to make it to Vicksburg and 98th streets.
