BREAKING NEWS: LAX shooting: Gunman in custody, flights grounded

10:50 a.m.: Law enforcement source said that the gunman had high-powered rifle and that at least three people were wounded, including one TSA agent. Suspect is in custody. Police looked for possible other suspects but so far have found none.

10:39 a.m.: Flights have been grounded at Los Angeles International Airport after a shooting that wounded at least one TSA agent. LAX officials said they did not know when flights would resume.

10:36 a.m.: A White House official said President Obama had been informed of the incident: "The President has been briefed about the shooting at LAX. We will continue to stay in touch with our federal and local partners. The LAPD is leading the response and investigation. We urge citizens to listen to the authorities and follow directions from the first responders on site. The president will continue to receive briefings throughout the day.”

10:30 a.m.: EYEWITNESS ACCOUNT: Brian Adamick, 43, said he was getting ready to fly to Chicago for his brother’s wedding and was boarding a Spirit Airlines flight at Gate 32 in Terminal 3.

He said people were running through the terminal, away from a security area. Adamick said he went through an emergency exit downstairs onto the tarmac with several other passengers.

“While I was on the tarmac, I heard two gunshots from the same area where the people had been running and screaming,” he said.

A few minutes after he got outside, he said buses showed up to help evacuate passengers. He saw a wounded TSA agent board one of the buses. The man’s ankle was bloody: “it looked like it was straight out of the movies,” Adamick said.

The man, told him, “I got shot, I’m fine.” He told passengers not to worry about him and that he had been shot before, Adamick said.

10:24 a.m.: TSA spokesman Nico Melendez confirmed one TSA officer was wounded in the shooting at LAX. He could provide no other details.

10:18 a.m.: Planes at LAX are grounded as the investigation of a shooting in which multiple people were wounded continues.

10:13 a.m.: A source at LAX told The Times that two or three TSA employees were hit by gunfire.

10:06 a.m.: The Los Angeles Police Department is on a citywide tactical alert. The LAPD would confirm only that two people were injured and that the suspect was in custody. LAPD Commander Andy Smith said "multiple shootings" occurred and that officers are still sorting out how many people were hurt.

10:05 a.m.: A man armed with a rifle opened fire at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday, leaving several people wounded.

Law enforcement sources told The Times that at least one Transportation Security Administration agent was shot.

Law enforcement officers were flooding the airport and terminals 2 and 3 were being evacuated.

Tory Belleci of the television show "Mythbusters" tweeted: "Heard gun shots then everyone starting running for the door. Not sure if anyone was hurt. #LAX."

TV footage showed dozens of offficers swarming the airport. Images also showed a law enforcement officer being treated by paramedics. He appeared to be alert. Another officer had a bloody hand.

So it may turn out to be a case of an ex employee going "postal" in his former workplace. That normally would give the story about only one 24 hour news cycle, but since it happened at an airport and LAX that should be worth flogging by the media for longer. Celebrity interviews, hand ringing about airport security, should be good for a few cycles. Yes, I am being cynical.

'Mad Men' Production Suspended At LAX During Shooting

Production on "Mad Men" was suspended on Friday, Nov. 4 following the shooting at LAX, according to tweets from a crew member.

A rep for AMC confirmed "Mad Men" crew was shooting at the airport, but could not provide any other additional details. According to key grip Dustin Woods, "Mad Men" was filming at American Airlines, Terminal 4, and was told to move to the far end of the tunnel for safety following the shooting.

The tweets have since been deleted, but Woods said "Police K-9 unit going through AA arrival terminal right now. Should be getting the all clear shortly" and "We got the ok to leave but Police have not given the all clear."

Stars of Discovery's "MythBusters" were in LAX at the time of the shooting.

"'Mythbusters' Grant Imahara and Tory Belleci were present in Terminal 3 at Los Angeles International Airport at the time of today's shooting incident. Both were en route to Delaware for the filming of 'Punkin Chunkin'. Grant and Tory are safe and being rerouted. Our thoughts are with all those affected by today's tragedy and our gratitude goes out to the members of the LAPD, Airport Police, TSA, and Virgin America staff for restoring safety to the scene," Discovery said in a statement.

I'd arrest that guy @R105 just for having Kylie Jenner and Jackie Chan as "favorites"

by Anonymousreply 10711/01/2013

The suspect has been identified by the FBI as Paul Ciancia, 23. He is believed to have homes in Los Angeles and Pennsville, N.J.

The note found at the scene ended with the letters "NWO," according to law enforcement sources, which is believed to stand for "New World Order." Law enforcement sources also said a large number of .223 caliber rounds were found at the airport.

Earlier today, Ciancia's father contacted police in Pennsville, N.J., with the concern that his son may be suicidal, Chief Allen Cummings of the Pennsville Police Department told ABC News.

"Their younger child got a text message from Paul stating that there were some comments in there about his well being and he wanted to possibly take his own life," Cummings said.

Cummings said he called the LAPD today and asked for officers to "try to get a well-being check" on Ciancia.

Officers went to Ciancia's apartment before the shooting and talked to his roommates, Cummings said.

Around the time of the shooting, LAPD officers called Cummings, unaware that Ciancia was the gunman, to let him know that they had satisfactorily completed the well-being check.

Authorities said they believe Ciancia acted alone, however they will investigate whether he has any ties to domestic terrorists.

LAX shooting: Celebrities live tweet from scene

The shooting drama at the Los Angeles International Airport on Friday resulted in a surreal influx of live reporting from the most unlikely combination of celebrities: From The Bachelor host Chris Harrison to members of Discovery’s Mythbusters gang to actor James Franco. Even the filming of the final season of AMC’s Mad Men was apparently disrupted.

A gunman open fired in the airport this morning, killing a TSA agent, according to CNN. A suspect was taken into custody after being pursued through Terminal 3.

Harrison tweeted from nearly the beginning of the action, “Somethin crazy goin on at LAX right now. Terminals shut down & cops w guns drawn!” and then TSA just shut the doors in lockdown. Shooting over at Terminal 3 … Police very polite but guns drawn & very serious about clearing the streets on the top level of LAX. Everybody very calm & respectful… Incredible response by LAPD & airport authority. This place was locked tight w precision quickly. God bless first responders!.”

Franco was sitting on a plane at the airport when the shooting took place, and posted on Instagram: “At #lax Some s–tbag shot up the place.”

Fox Sports analyst Bill Reiter tweeted: “First came the gunfire. Then people including me hiding our seats. It felt very Columbine. A new kind of fear, at least for me” and “It’s weird how in that moment time could be so fast and so slow at the same time. My God.”

Also on hand were Mythbusters Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara, who live-tweeted their experience being evacuated from the terminal, with Belleci noting, “That was f—-ing terrifying!” and “Holy s—t!!! How the hell did guns get passed security? Outside now.”

Imahara drew comments for his profile picture, which featured him holding a replica of Han Solo’s blaster, and he swapped out the image.

A crew member for Mad Men also apparently tweeted that production of the sixth and final season was disrupted while filming in nearby Terminal 4. But network declined to comment and the tweets were subsequently deleted.

How I Met Your Mother co-creator Craig Thomas was also on the scene: “I was at LAX Terminal 3 this morning, waiting to fly to New York – I had to run for my life, with many others…This was a terrifying experience I will never forget…It’s one thing to see a story like Sandy Hook and know in your head that we have to do something about guns in our country…It’s another thing to run for your life and wonder if you’ll ever see your wife and child and friends again… New thought: Let’s all approach gun control like we’ve all, every one of us, run for our lives from gun fire – what would our laws be then?”

Poignantly added actor-comedian JB Smoove: “Stuck in LAX after the shooting in the terminal. This world is in a bad place. Hope we can fix it. #beblessed”

[quote]To be honest, I don't even care about this shit anymore. Any country that can watch 20+ children get slaughtered and do nothing deserves what they get. Mass shootings are something that we are going to be dealing with from now on. Might as well get used to it cause all the politicians are too busy with their thumbs up their asses.

R143 nails it to the wall.

The New Jersey native who killed a TSA agent and wounded five people in a wild Los Angeles airport shootup left a note describing himself online as a “pissed off patriot” angry that airport searches violate his rights.

Paul Ciancia, 23, walked into a packed Los Angeles International Airport terminal Friday morning wearing fatigues and carrying an AR-15 assault rifle and about 150 rounds of ammunition.

Ciancia wrote in his note that he “wanted to kill TSA and pigs,” and was disappointed with the government, but did not want to hurt civilians, according to reports.

He signed it with the letters “NWO,” an apparent reference to an anti-government group called “New World Order,” according to the Daily Mail. - A cold-blooded LAX gunman shot a TSA officer repeatedly at point-blank range – and then returned to finish the job after he saw the dying man move, firing at him again, investigators said.

Alleged airport assassin Paul Ciancia, 23, whipped out a .223-caliber assault rifle from a duffle bag and opened fire on uniformed TSA worker and dad of two Gerardo Hernandez, 39. Ciancia then “began to walk up an escalator, looked back at the wounded officer, who in video appeared to move, and returned to shoot the wounded officer again,” according to a federal complaint charging Ciancia with first-degree murder.

In his handwritten one-page manifesto, recovered after the attack, Ciancia wrote that he “made a conscious decision to try and kill” TSA employees “to instill fear in your traitorous minds,” according to the criminal complaint. “It’s clearly one of those notes that reads, ‘I’m going to kill people, and I don’t want to kill civilians,’ with the idea that he’s going to die at the end of this,’’ McCaul told CNN’s State of the Union.

The congressman said the note indicates that Ciancia clearly “wanted to talk about how easy it is to bring a gun into an airport and do something just like he did.”


"Pissed off patriot" sounded to me like some kind of wingnut speak, so I googled it and lo and behold, what do you think I found?
