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 Los Angeles International Airport police dispatcher who received a call seconds after a gunman opened fire last year didn't know where to send officers because no one was on the line and the airport communications system didn't identify that the call was coming from a security checkpoint emergency phone, two officials told The Associated Press.
A man carrying a bag with a hand-written note that said he "wanted to kill TSA" opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle at a security checkpoint at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday, killing a TSA officer and wounding at least three others, authorities said.
A suspect in dry ice bottle blasts at Los Angeles International Airport will be charged with two counts of possessing a destructive device in a public place, the district attorney's office said Thursday.
Police have arrested a man in connection with one of the dry ice explosions that hit at Los Angeles International Airport this week, on Sunday and on Monday.
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.
Gannon said all the panic buttons are now working and are checked daily to ensure they're functioning properly.
Meanwhile, Gannon said airport staff also worked to ensure that all airport employees have the airport police dispatch number in their cellphones.
