Mad Men did not get off to the most auspicious start during the first day of production for its final season. A crewmember says the AMC drama was filming at Los Angeles International Airport when the shooting, which has already left two dead, took place in the neighboring terminal.
First reported by Franklin Avenue, series grip Dustin Woods documented the events on his Twitter account starting at 10:19 a.m. [As of 3:45 p.m., all tweets were deleted.]

“We are filming at LAX. Gun fire. Locked down. Evacuating,” wrote Woods. “Terminal 4. Forced back inside for safety.”
Woods, who joined the series during its fifth season (according to IMDB), went on to say that it was Mad Men‘s first day back in production.
It was not immediately clear which regular castmembers, if any, were filming. Reps for both AMC and producer Lionsgate TV declined to comment.
Actor James Franco, Bachelor host Chris Harrison and singer Joe Jonas were also among those at LAX this morning.
AMC recently announced that the final season of Mad Men would be split in two, in a similar fashion to Breaking Bad, airing seven episodes in spring 2014 and seven more in spring 2015.
