Suspect In LA Airport Shooting Pleads Not Guilty

A man charged with fatally shooting a TSA screener and wounding three other people at Los Angeles International Airport last month has pleaded not guilty.

Paul Anthony Ciancia entered his plea Thursday during a brief appearance before a federal magistrate at a Southern California detention center.

The 23-year-old Ciancia was indicted on first-degree murder and 10 other counts in the Nov. 1 shooting that killed Transportation Security Administration Officer Gerardo Hernandez.

Trial is set for Feb. 11 in Los Angeles federal court.
