2002 Los Angeles Airport shooting
The 2002 Los Angeles Airport shooting was a terrorist attack by a lone gunman on an airline ticket counter at Los Angeles International Airport.
On July 4, 2002, Hesham Mohamed Hadayet, a 41-year-old Egyptian national, opened fire on a line of people at the El Al Airline airport ticket counter, killing two and wounding four others at Los Angeles International Airport. He was shot dead by a security guard for the Israeli airline. The FBI concluded this was terrorism, although the gunman acted alone.
The attack was similar to the Rome and Vienna Airport Attacks.
