LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Operations at Los Angeles International Airport resumed Sunday, two days after Friday’s deadly rampage claimed a TSA officer’s life and left five others wounded, including the alleged gunman.
The 100-foot pylons at LAX lit up in blue overnight while an American flag was flown at half-staff to remember TSA officer Gerardo I. Hernandez, 39. His death marked the first “line of duty” death in the agency’s 12-year history.
On Saturday, airport officials announced the reopening of Terminal 3, where the shooting unfolded just after 9:20 a.m. Friday. Although fully operational, some travelers expressed their reservations to KNX 1070’s Ed Mertz.
