Slain TSA Officer Honored at LAX

Slain TSA Officer Honored at LAX

The TSA officer killed by a rampaging gunman at Los Angeles International Airport was honored at the place where he died.  Gerardo Hernandez was remembered Wednesday by TSA officers, police officers and others who lined the airport walkways.

A motorcade circled the airport's main road twice. Hernandez is the first TSA officer killed in the line of duty.

The 39-year-old father of two was shot in an attack Friday that wounded two others TSA officers and at least one bystander.


The alleged gunman, Paul Ciancia, was wounded by airport police and remains hospitalized.

Authorities say he was targeting TSA employees.
