The gunman from New Jersey identified in the LAX shootings was a quiet loner who was bullied in high school, according to classmates.
Paul Anthony Ciancia, who allegedly killed a TSA agent and wounded 7 others at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday, grew up in Pennsville.
Ciancia graduated from Salesianum School in Delaware in 2008. Classmate David Hamilton said, according to the Los Angeles Times, “I really don’t remember any one person who was close to him.” Jeff Skidmore added, “He was always hanging his head and just shuffling along. He didn’t seem like he wanted to interact with anybody.”
According to heavy.com, Ciancia is reported to have "strong anti-government views." Ciancia was dressed in military-style fatigues, and was specifically looking for Transportation Security Administration employees, according to witnesses at the airport. The note he carried said that he "wanted to kill TSA and pigs."
