One moment Mark Henry and his wife Audrey were all smiles as they checked in for their upcoming weekend in Chicago, the next they were running for their lives as shots rang out at Los Angeles International Airport.

"We heard about eight shots just in a row — bang, bang, bang! And then we all kind of hit the deck," Henry told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.



"The shots were coming from the lower floor and we weren’t sure if the suspect was going to come up the escalator . . . It was a nightmare, exactly like something you see in a movie."

The violence erupted at 9:20 a.m., Pacific Standard Time, when a 23-year-old man carrying anti-government material and toting an assault rifle began shooting, blasting his way through a security point.

He killed one Transportation Security Administration worker and wounded three others as horrified passengers screamed and ran for their lives.

The gunman, identified as Paul Anthony Ciancia, was shot by officers and was in critical condition Friday afternoon.

The Henrys were on their way to a meat processing trade show when, suddenly, all that mattered was staying alive.

"We literally ran for our lives . . . We ran all the way over to Terminal 2 and my wife [had on] only one shoe . . .We figured we better get on out of there. And that's exactly what we did."
