LOS ANGELES (CNN) – Los Angeles International Airport's terminal 3 – the scene of Friday's deadly shooting – officially reopened on Saturday.
The FBI continues to investigate the gunman, who was taken into custody after being shot by police.
Authorities say 23-year-old Paul Ciancia pulled out an assault rifle and opened fire in the crowded terminal on Friday.
A TSA agent was killed and several other people were injured, including at least two other agents.
Investigators say Ciancia was found with materials expressing anti-government views and anger, specifically against the TSA.
He's been charged with the murder of a federal officer and, if convicted, could face the death penalty.
Ciancia was taken into custody after being shot multiple times in the chest.
The deadly shooting at LAX on Friday wreaked havoc at one of the world's busiest travel hubs and renewed questions about airport security. LAX Police Chief Patrick Gannon said areas of risk aren't limited to checkpoints.
"I made a decision, over this last year, to make a move of those individuals. And instead of being behind security - where people have already been screened, and we assume they have been unarmed - we moved them out to the front and gave them greater responsibilities," said Gannon. "And so, the threat here at the airport does not exist behind security at that podium; the threat exists from the curb line on. And so, as a part of that, we have our people stationed throughout the airport."
