Law enforcement, K-9 search plane at LAX after threat

LOS ANGELES (KUSI) — An unknown threat Tuesday initiated the deployment of law personnel—some with bomb-sniffing dogs—onto a Compass Airlines jetliner after the plane landed at Los Angeles International Airport.

The plane traveling from Houston to LAX landed safely around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday and was taken to a remote section of the airfield, where a stair car was brought to the aircraft.

Passengers did not immediately deboard the plane. No injuries were immediately reported.

Compass Airlines is a sub-carrier, an airport spokesman said. The words American Eagle are written on the side of the aircraft.
