President Obama Met With TSA Agents Injured By LAX Shooter, And The Family Of Fallen Agent Hernandez At The Beverly Hilton, Highlight Hollywood News

President Barack Obama on Monday visited with the family of a Transportation Security Administration officer who was killed at Los Angeles International Airport earlier this month. White House spokesman Josh Earnest says President Obama gathered with relatives of officer Gerardo Hernandez at the Beverly Hilton Hotel here in Beverly Hills.  Obama was in Los Angeles to attend Democratic Party fundraisers.
The President also met with TSA agents Tony Grigsby and James Speer, both of whom were wounded in the shootings.

On Nov. 1, a gunman pulled a semi-automatic rifle from a bag and shot the TSA officers. Hernandez died from his wounds. Authorities have said 23-year-old Paul Ciancia (see-AHN’-see-uh) had a vendetta against the federal government and was targeting TSA officers.     Hernandez had a wife, Ana, and a 14-year-old son and 11-year-old daughter.
