Federal prosecutors are urging a judge to impose a life sentence on Paul Ciancia, the man killed a TSA officer and wounded there other people when he opened fire inside a Los Angele International Airport terminal, MyNewsLA.com reports. 

Ciancia “plotted to commit mass murder at one of the nation’s foremost transportation hubs, murdered a beloved public servant in cold blood, seriously injured two other federal officers whom he shot and was attempting to kill, shot and injured a passenger who was traveling to attend a wedding, and terrified hundreds of other passengers and employees at LAX who feared for their lives and the safety of their families,” according to the document filed in advance of Ciancia’s Nov. 7 sentencing hearing in downtown Los Angeles.

TSA Officer Gerardo I. Hernandez was killed and two additional TSA officers were wounded. Also injured was a teacher, Brian Ludmer.

“This decision will require the Bureau of Prisons to balance several important factors, including considerations of facility security and the safety of federal prison workers in light of defendant’s mental condition and the fact that he continues to subscribe to the belief structure that contributed to the commission of his crimes,” the prosecutor wrote.

Ciancia pleaded guilty to 11 counts of murder and other charges on Sept. 6. He dodged the death penalty by entering into a plea agreement.
