LOS ANGELES - - A man charged with killing a Transportation Security Administration officer during an attack at Los Angeles International Airport last month is scheduled to make his first court appearance Wednesday.
Authorities say 23-year-old Paul Ciancia (see-AHN'-see-uh) will have his first court hearing at a San Bernardino County jail.
He's being housed at the facility in federal custody. Investigators say Ciancia had a vendetta against the federal government and targeted TSA officers when he pulled a semi-automatic rifle from a bag and fatally shot Gerardo Hernandez. Ciancia was shot and wounded by airport police Nov. 1 as passengers scrambled to safety.
Ciancia is charged with killing Hernandez and wounding three other people, including two other TSA officers. The charges carry a potential death sentence.
