A security breach forces the evacuation of hundreds of people from Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City.

A partially-filled box of ammunition was found Wednesday afternoon in the secure part of the airport, beyond the screening area. The airport's new west concourse was evacuated, delaying passengers of five different airlines.

People on at least two flights were ordered off their planes to be re-screened. Ultimately, an unidentified passenger claimed the ammunition and cooperated with the investigation.

Ammunition can be taken on flights, but it must be checked in a bag, declared, and inside a hard case.
