The man accused of opening fire at Los Angeles International Airport and killing a federal security screener while wounding three other people is expected to plead not guilty on Thursday to charges of murder and attempted murder of federal officers. This is the second court appearance for Paul Anthony Ciancia, 23, in connection with the November 1 shooting spree. In addition to a single count of murder and two counts of attempted murder of federal officers, Ciancia was indicted on four counts of committing an act of violence at an international airport and four counts of firearms offenses. The TSA agent who was killed, Gerardo Hernandez, 39, was the first agent slain in the line of duty since the agency was created in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, attacks.
