No shots were fired at JFK International Airport in Queens late Sunday, despite reports to the contrary, a Port Authority police spokesman told Daily Voice.

"There were no firearm rounds or shell casings or other evidence of shots fired,"" the authority's Joseph Pentangelo. "There are no injuries."

Two terminals were evacuated as a precaution, he said.

A second call of shots fired forced the Port Authority to evacuate Terminal 1 at 10:15 p.m., about an hour and 15 minutes after they cleared Terminal 8, Pentangelo told Daily Voice.

The Van Wyck Expressway near the airport also was briefly shut down.
