“The thoughts and prayers of the entire Department go out to the family of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) employee who lost their life in the senseless shooting at Los Angeles International Airport earlier today, as well as the additional individuals, including TSA employees, who were injured in the incident.
This act of violence reminds us of the risks the brave men and women of TSA face every day as they work to protect the traveling public.
The Department of Homeland Security, including TSA, will continue to work closely with the FBI, Los Angeles World Airports Police Department, Los Angeles Police Department, and other federal, state, and local law enforcement partners to investigate this heinous crime. As always, our security posture, which at all times includes a number of measures both seen and unseen, will continue to respond appropriately to protect the American people.”AFGE is monitoring the situation along with TSA management."
