The Los Angeles airport police chief said Friday that the facility's communications system has been fixed after what he termed a glitch prevented a faster response to a gunman last fall.
A gun in a 10th-grader's backpack accidentally discharged when he dropped the bag, wounding two students at a high school Tuesday, Los Angeles police and school authorities said.
He added that other officer was on the tarmac, which is part of his area.
Gannon acknowledged that they were outside the terminal when the shooting started and that one was on break without notifying dispatchers per department policy.
