Mark Koernke pointed out this about his name: CIA-n-CIA.

CBS News – by Stephanie Slifer

(CBS) LOS ANGELES – U.S. law enforcement officials confirm that Paul Anthony Ciancia, 23, is the suspected gunman in Friday’s shooting at Los Angeles International Airport.

They say he has a family address in New Jersey.  Officials also say he spent some time in the Los Angeles area.  A preliminary review of the terror data bases and watch lists find no connections to Ciancia.   And he does not have any significant police record.  

Also, sources say, despite some reports to the contrary, the suspect is still alive.

Law enforcement sources told CBS News that “anti-government, anti-TSA writings” were found in the shooter’s carry-on style bag.

The union representing the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) says the male officer who was killed was a Behavior Detection Officer (BDO) who was the travel document checker at the checkpoint area, had  recently transferred to LAX from Montana, and had no prior interaction with the shooter.

Authorities believe a lone gunman was behind the shooting at LAX Friday morning that left multiple victims wounded, Los Angeles Airport Police Chief Patrick Gannon said at a press conference.

Gannon said the gunman was taken into custody following an officer-involved shooting.

Officials say it is a “static situation.”

Gannon said the gunman entered Terminal 3 of the airport at about 9:30 a.m., PST, pulled an assault rifle out of a bag and began to open fire. The gunman then proceeded up into the screening area and continued shooting, according to Gannon. He said the gunman got “far, very far back into the terminal.”

He said the individual was tracked through the airport and authorities engaged him in gunfire inside Terminal 3. It was then that the suspect was taken into custody.

Los Angeles Fire Chief Jim Featherstone said the Los Angeles Fire Department treated seven individuals and transported six of those individuals to area hospitals.

Dr. Lynne McCullough has confirmed Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center received three male victims from the incident. She said one of those victims is in critical condition and the other two patients are in fair condition.

CBS Los Angeles confirms one 40-year-old male is dead in connection to the shooting.

Officials would not release the identity of the suspect and said they could not confirm reports that the gunman was a TSA employee. A federal official tells CBS News the shooter was not a current or former TSA employee.

The investigation is being handled by the FBI.

CBS News’ John Miller reported that a law enforcement source said the gunman was wearing a camouflage battle dress uniform and that a large box of ammunition was found at the scene.

Gina Marie Lindsey, Executive Director of Los Angeles World Airports, said in Friday’s press conference that LAX is still accepting some incoming flights. She said almost every flight out of the airport Friday will be significantly late.

  1. “Authorities believe a lone gunman was behind the shooting at LAX Friday morning that left multiple victims wounded, Los Angeles Airport Police Chief Patrick Gannon said at a press conference.”

    Damn! ANOTHER lone gunman.

    Don’t they ever come in pairs?

    And the last name is priceless.

    NO SALE.

  2. lmao

    Ciancia = CIA-n-CIA. Awesome find by Mr. Koernke. It’s one hell of a conincidence, ain’t it? And, of course, the obligatory “anti-government” writings. Who in the world would have guessed it? /sarcastic yawn

    “They” need to quit f’ing around and just go for it, amirite? I’d have more respect if they’d just say “Okay, America, you can’t have firearms. We’re gonna come get ’em so be ready to fight or turn ’em in.”

    1. Can we get an AMEN from the choir? Damn right Tennessee!
      They want the fight, we want the BS over.
      Hey, BARRY BAT EARS OBAMA (just for what ever alphabet soup troll is monitoring, I wouldn’t want any mistake here!) You and your handlers need to grow a pair. Bring it on. I want my country back.

  3. Its not the guns fault. It has a right to be there under the constitution. Its the tsa who are at fault. They are not protected by the constitution. No tsa = no victim.
    I love logic
    even when its illogical.

  4. Wow! What kind of person has a last name called, “Ciancia”? Is that even a name? Good eye, Mark.

    You’re right. That sounds like a complete made up name or subliminal message for “CIA-n-CIA”. I guess the elite are trying to promote or celebrate their show by sending hidden messages that only they are able to understand in order to make them feel superior over the sheeple.

    Kinda like “Pink stars are falling” or saying “when sky is falling” a few times in your speech to initiate a mission.

  5. A sick sense of humor?

    Ciancia syndrome

    2 A large angle of deviation.
    3 Bilateral limitation of abduction.
    4 Abducting jerk nystagmus with the quick phase toward the fixating eye.
    5 Torticollis with face turn toward the fixating eye.
