LAX Airport Video During Shooting Reveals Evacuation Chaos

Mobile phone footage obtained by TMZ reveals chaos inside Los Angeles International Airport during the Friday morning shooting that left one Transportation Security Administration agent dead and several more wounded.

The video starts with two armed police officers walking through the airport lobby. One officer shouts for everyone to hit the floor. After a cut in the video, dozens of travelers emerge from what appears to be the security line at the airport, running with their luggage toward the exit. In the distance, police car sirens are wailing.

A uniformed TSA agent is among the crowd fighting to reach the exit.

During a press conference after the shooting, Patrick Gannon, chief of LAX airport police, said his force completed training earlier this week to prepare for a similar situation. Gannon said the training was "critical" to how officers responded on Friday.

LA Mayor Eric Garcetti praised LAX police and said the gunman had the bullets to do much more harm than he did.

Ciancia Was Loner In High School

Paul Ciancia, the 23-year-old former New Jersey resident who has been identified by the FBI as the suspected LAX gunman, was a loner at the private high school he attended in Delaware, a former schoolmate told the Los Angeles Times.

The newspaper reported:

“In four years, I never heard a word out of his mouth,” said David Hamilton, who graduated with Ciancia from Salesianum School in Willmington, Del., in 2008, and is now an editorial assitant at a publishing firm in Philadelphia. “He kept to himself and ate lunch alone a lot. I really don’t remember any one person who was close to him.”
