LAX Shooter Who Killed TSA Agent In 2013 Pleads Guilty To Murder
Paul Ciancia, the gunman who opened fire at LAX in 2013 and killed a TSA agent has plead guilty to murder and other charges related to the incident. As part of his deal, prosecutors would not seek the death penalty, reports the AP.
On the morning of November 1, 2013, the then-23-year-old Ciancia entered Terminal 3 and shot his way past the security checkpoint. He fatally shot TSA agent Gerardo Hernandez and wounded three others before he was gunned down by LAX police officers.
According to federal investigators, Ciancia was targeting the TSA and reportedly carried a note that said he "wanted to kill TSA and pigs."
