A Salesianum School graduate could face the death penalty if he's convicted in a deadly shooting rampage at Los Angeles International Airport.

Federal prosecutors have filed charges of murder and commission of violence at an international airport against Paul Ciancia of Pennsville, NJ. A TSA agent was killed and several people, including Ciancia, were wounded.

Police say the suspect in the Los Angeles International Airport shootings intended to target TSA personnel.

Part of a note carried by Ciancia spoke of stirring fear in "traitorous minds." The FBI say Ciancia is still unresponsive and can't be questioned.

Gerardo Hernandez, the first TSA official in the agency's 12-year history to be killed in the line of duty, is being remembered as a family man who constantly smiled at travelers.

The TSA says it will review its policy on officer safety.

Ciancia, who is an unemployed motorcycle mechanic, graduated from Salesianum School in 2008.
