No myth to bust here: The shooting scene at LAX on Friday was quite scary.

And “Mythbusters” stars Grant Imahara and Tory Belleci were both there to tweet about it, sending photos and messages from inside the airport to their Twitter followers.

Belleci tweeted a photo of the scene, writing: "Shooters in #LAX That was f***ing terrifying! ... Heard gun shots then everyone starting running for the door."

Authorities said an individual entered Terminal 3 about 9:30 a.m., pulled an assault rifle out of a bag and opened fire in the terminal.

People inside the terminal were evacuated onto the tarmac.

Imahara tweeted: “I was in the Virgin lounge upstairs. Saw everyone pour out of the terminal onto the tarmac. Then I heard shots fired outside ... Virgin promptly locked the lounge doors.

“About ten minutes later, LAPD armed with automatic weapons arrived to secure the area.”
