SOURCE: NOTE THREATENED 'TSA AND PIGS'
A law enforcement official tells The Associated Press that 23-year-old suspect Paul Ciancia is from New Jersey and was wearing fatigues and carrying a bag containing a hand-written note that said he "wanted to kill TSA and pigs." The official requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.
Update: NBC says it knows who the gunman is and that he may have been motivated by “anti-government views” based on written material he was carrying. What that means exactly, I don’t know, but the left has been waiting two and a half years, since the story behind the Tucson shooting fell apart on them, to try its “conservatism equals murderous insanity” narrative again. We’ll see what the “materials” say.
The gunman, identified by law-enforcement officials as 23-year-old Paul Anthony Ciancia, was shot by law enforcement and taken into custody in critical condition. The motive is not clear but it’s believed he had anti-government views based on written materials he was carrying, the officials said.Federal officials told NBC News it was unclear whether Ciancia was targeting the TSA or was trying to shoot his way through to get further into the airport. But one witness said the shooter, who calmly walking through the terminal with his weapon, approached him with a one-word question.“All he said was, ‘TSA?’ Just like that,” Leon Saryan told MSNBC.
Shots fired at LAX -- UPDATE: Had Rifle, In Custody, 1 TSA Agent Dead
The Los Angeles International Airport shooter "pulled an assault rifle out of a bag and began to open fire in" Terminal 3 on Friday morning, airport police Chief Patrick Gannon told reporters....
A TSA agent shot Friday at the Los Angeles International Airport is dead, according to an intelligence source briefed by Los Angeles police and a federal source....So, the shooter killed a TSA agent with a rifle -- that they're calling an "assault" rifle, but the normal media rule applies here that no one in the media knows what an assault rifle looks like so they're all "assault rifles" to them -- was himself shot by a police officer on duty, but the Times is also reporting that a third victim was checked into the hospital.
The shooter walked to the security checkpoint, pulled out a concealed assault rifle and shot the TSA agent; the shooter then went through the checkpoint, and a police officer shot the shooter.
Reports are that the suspect is in custody.
UPDATE: Make that one dead and three at the hospital. I just saw the presser on the local Fox affiliate.
The newsies are reporting that it was an "AK-47 type assault weapon", but a guy who was standing near the perp as he opened fire claims he didn't hear the rifle shot, and the guy claims he's a hunter heading back to Canada.
Over at Hot Air, AP has some photos of what looks like a rifle on the ground, and it doesn't look like an "AK type" of rifle to me. Maybe an AR lookalike chambered in a .22? That would explain why it didn't make that much noise.
Here it is.
I don't know how tall that cop is, so hard to gain perspective on the rifle's size, but it looks about right for all those AR lookalikes you see at WalMart (outside of CA, of course). Most of them are .22s. Just a guess until we have something more than that.
said the gunman entered Terminal 3 at 9:20 a.m. He pulled an assault rifle out of his bag and began firing. He moved into the screening area and continued shooting, Gannon said. He got past the checkpoint area and moved further into the terminal. Authorities tracked him down and shot him near a Burger King.
Updated at 1 p.m.: The Times earlier reported that the suspect was dead. But sources have since told the paper he is in criitical condition.]
The motive was unclear. A federal law enforcement official said that the gunman was a ticketed passenger entering the airport.
No motive or other details have been released. The attack does not appear to be terrorist related at this time and no terror alert has been issued.
