Paul Ciancia, the alleged gunman in the deadly shooting that took place at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday, was charged with murder by federal prosecutors on Nov. 2, 2013, according to the Chicago Tribune.
During the LAX shooting rampage, Transportation Security Administration screener, Gerardo Hernandez, 39, was killed.
Authorities announced Ciancia, 23, could face the death penalty for Hernandez’s death.
A criminal complaint released Saturday says the alleged gunman entered Terminal 3 at the airport, pulled a .223-caliber assault rifle out of his bag, and shot Hernandez at point-blank range multiple times at a document verification checkpoint, according to the Tribune.
The complaint adds that Ciancia began walking up the escalator, but after looking back and apparently seeing the wounded TSA employee move, he returned and shot Hernandez again.
In the chaos, two other TSA employees were shot and wounded, along with an airline passenger.
LAX police stopped the alleged gunman by shooting him in the leg.
Ciancia is in critical condition and had not been interviewed by federal authorities as of Saturday morning due to his injuries, according to the Tribune.
