TSA to review security after LAX shooting

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Transportation Security Administration will review its policy on officer safety in the wake of the deadly shooting at Los Angeles International Airport. TSA Administrator John Pistole said Saturday that the agency's officers are "the first line of defense" in airport security. He said the agency would do everything possible to make sure Friday's tragedy was never repeated. Pistole did not say if that meant arming officers. He spoke outside the home of slain TSA officer Gerardo Hernandez. The 39-year-old Hernandez was fatally shot Friday when a gunman identified as Paul Ciancia entered LAX's Terminal 3 and began shooting. Five others, including two more TSA workers and the gunman, were injured. Police say they found a note that indicated Ciancia targeted TSA officers. (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
