New Revelations About Accused LAX Gunman Paul Anthony Ciancia — Rick Chambers Reports
The alleged gunman accused in opening fire with a semi-automatic rifle inside a crowded terminal at LAX has been identified as 23-year-old Paul Anthony Ciancia, a resident of Los Angeles and a U.S. citizen.
Ciancia walked up to the security check point, and “pulled an assault rifle out of a bag and began to open fire,” airport police Chief Patrick Gannon.
He shot two TSA agents, killing one, as he made his way past the check point. He then ran toward the gates in Terminal 3 where he was chased down and shot multiple times by an LAPD officer, authorities said.
