LOS ANGELES (AP) — A federal grand jury has indicted a man accused of a deadly shooting spree at the Los Angeles International Airport on first-degree murder charges.
The indictment charging 23-year-old Paul Anthony Ciancia with 11 felonies was filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court.
Ciancia is charged with murder in the death of Transportation Security Administration Officer Gerardo Hernandez in the Nov. 1 shooting. If convicted, he could face the death penalty.
Ciancia is also charged with attempted murder in the shooting of two other TSA officers with a semi-automatic rifle. A passenger was also wounded.
Investigators say Ciancia had a vendetta against the federal government and targeted TSA officers when he pulled the rifle from a bag and started shooting. Ciancia was wounded by airport police as passengers scrambled to safety.
