The man accused of opening fire at Los Angeles International Airport, killing a federal security screener wounding three other people in November, has pleaded not guilty to all charges in the 11-count indictment.
In addition to a single count of murder and two counts of attempted murder of federal officers, Ciancia was indicted on four counts of committing an act of violence at an international airport and four counts of firearms offences.
The Los Angeles International Airport terminal where a gunman opened fire on Friday morning, shooting dead an unarmed federal agent and wounding others, has now reopened, LAX Airport confirmed in a tweet.
The Los Angeles International Airport terminal where a gunman opened fire on Friday morning, killing an unarmed federal airport security agent and wounding others, remained closed to airplane traffic the day after the shooting as authorities probed the motive behind the attack.
Authorities have identified the suspected shooter as Paul Anthony Ciancia, 23, and they said he was shot and wounded by police in an exchange of gunfire at the airport's busy Terminal 3.
The investigation into the attack will probe the shooting itself as well as the gunman's background and motivation, Special Agent David Bowdich of the FBI said on Friday. "Our goal is to do a true scrub on the individual to find out what was the tipping point for this person," he said.
