The 23-year-old New Jersey man who authorities have identified as the gunman in the shooting rampage at LAX was a slightly built loner who was bullied at his private Catholic high school, a classmate recalled Friday. “In four years, I never heard a word out of his mouth,” David Hamilton said of alleged shooter Paul Anthony Ciancia. “He kept to himself and ate lunch alone a lot,” said Hamilton, who graduated with Ciancia from Salesianum School in Wilmington, Del., in 2008. “I really don't remember any one person who was close to him.” Hamilton, an editorial assistant at a publishing firm in Philadelphia, said he recalled Ciancia being the victim of bullying, but did not remember any particular incidents.

Hamilton to the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago. White House aides described Hamilton as a careful judge who follows the law and also shows "empathy for real people with real problems." They said Obama was sending a signal with this pick that he would consult Senate Republicans about his judicial nominations.
