(LOS ANGELES) — Saturday marks one year since a gunman opened fire inside Los Angeles International Airport.

On November 1, 2013, a lone gunman carrying a semi-automatic rifle opened fire, killing Gerardo Hernandez, a TSA officer.  

A year later, Marshall McClain, with the union representing LAX police officers, says not enough has been done to prevent a similar shooting.

“The chaos and confusion was happening at the management level and that still hasn’t been corrected at this point,” McClain said.

LA World Airports Police Chief Patrick Gannon says, while improvements have been made, he “can’t guarantee that tomorrow somebody wouldn’t be able to come here and commit a violent act.”

A moment of silence was observed at airport checkpoints nationwide Saturday at 9:20 a.m. PT.
