T.S.A. Agent Who Was Killed at LAX Turns Out Not to be From Montana

Posted: Updated:

 

The American Federation of Government Employees say the T.S.A. officer killed in a recent shooting in LAX, was actually not from Montana.

Police say 23-year-old Paul Ciancia shot and killed 39-year-old Gerardo Hernandez, and wounded several other people with a semi-automatic rifle inside of LAX.

The A.F.G.E. identified Hernandez as a "behavior detection officer" who was recently re-located from Montana.

But they are now saying that information is incorrect, because they originally thought Hernandez was another officer with a similar last name.

Instead, officials from the T.S.A. are saying that Hernandez was actually from Porter Ranch, California, a suburb of Los Angeles.
