The suspect in the last month’s Los Angeles airport shooting that killed one federal employee and wounded two others will appear in court Wednesday morning for an arraignment, according to federal prosecutors.
Paul Anthony Ciancia, 23, will not be asked to enter a plea, but a U.S. magistrate judge will “make sure that the defendant has been apprised of his rights, has seen the criminal complaint filed against him, and has an attorney,”U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman Thom Mrozek said in a statement Monday.
The hearing, scheduled to take place at a San Bernadino county jail facility, may include discussions of bond and future court dates, according to Mrozek.
Federal prosecutors charged Ciancia on Nov. 2 with murder and commission of violence at an international airport, saying the suspect killed Transportation Security Administration screener Gerardo Hernandez and wounded two other federal officers during a shooting rampage.
Police shot the suspect, who survived the incident with severe wounds to the face and leg. Authorities moved him from Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center into the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service on Nov. 19.
Ciancia is being held without bail at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., according to online jail records.
(CORRECTION: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated the hearing date as Dec. 3. It is scheduled to take place on Dec. 4).
