UPDATE 6:27 p.m.: Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport is all clear after the discovery of a written bomb threat prompted an evacuation Sunday afternoon.

ALABAMA - A terminal at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport in Alabama has been evacuated, the airport said on its Twitter account Sunday.

The evacuation was prompted by a threat received around 4 p.m., the airport said. No other information was immediately available.

The incident comes just days after a gunman opened fire in the Los Angeles International Airport, killing a TSA officer and wounding three other people.
