LAX shooting: Gerardo I. Hernandez became first TSA agent killed in line of duty
The LAX gunman, who injured at least two others, was wounded in the shootout with airport police and taken into custody, authorities said.
Paul Anthony Ciancia’s condition was not disclosed.
When the shooting stopped, a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officer was dead. Gerardo I. Hernandez, 39, became the first TSA officer in the agency’s 12-year history to be killed in the line of duty.
Five other people were hurt, including two other TSA employees and gunman Paul Ciancia, 23, of Pennsville, New Jersey. He was shot four times by airport police and remained hospitalized but there was no word on his condition.
Paul Ciancia apparently had been living in Los Angeles for about 1½ years, authorities said.
