LOS ANGELES (AP) — Officials say the suspect in the Los Angeles International Airport shootings had a lot of ammunition as well as a note indicating a grudge against TSA agents and "pigs."
A source says the note talked about TSA searches being violations of his constitutional rights.
Officials say the gunman, identified as Paul Ciancia of Pennsville, N.J., had at least 150 rounds of ammunition when he opened fire, killing a TSA agent and wounding several people as others in the panicked terminal ran for cover. Two other TSA employees are among the wounded.
The dead man, 39-year-old Gerardo I. Hernandez, is the first TSA agent to die in the line of duty.
The gunman was shot four times by police and is in custody at a hospital.
