This is the face of a madman.
A blood-drenched Paul Ciancia lays stunned on the floor at Los
Angeles International Airport after brave airport cops shot him four
times, including once in the face, to stop his rampage through the
crowded terminal that left one TSA agent dead and six other people hurt
Ciancia allegedly had a grudge against the Transportation Security
Administration and a hatred for former Homeland Security chief Janet
Napolitano, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
“FU Janet Napolitano,” he apparently says in the one-page,
handwritten screed, in which he proclaims that airport searches violate
In this stunning first image of the alleged shooter, Ciancia is seen
with his hands cuffed behind his slim body, surrounded by law
enforcement as he stares off into space, next to a thick, bright pool of
his own blood on the floor.
The shot he took to the mouth knocked out teeth and split his tongue,
sources said. Ciancia, a Pennsville, NJ, native, is in critical
condition at UCLA Medical Center.
He walked into Terminal 3, whipped out a semi-automatic rifle and
began firing away at every Transportation Security Administration
TSA Agent Gerardo I. Hernandez, 39, was killed and hundreds of
terrified air travelers ran for safety as Ciancia stalked his way
through the terminal.
His handwritten note also said he “wanted to kill TSA and pigs,” according to reports.
