Paramedics and others took too long to respond to last year’s shooting rampage at the Los Angeles International Airport, according to an independent report.

The report indicates that paramedics took 33 minutes to get to Transportation Security Agency officer Gerardo Hernandez, 39, who was killed in the shooting.

He died between two minutes and five minutes after he was shot, becoming the first TSA agent killed in the line of duty.

The report cites communications breakdowns and a lack of coordination.

The American Federation of Government Employees responded by saying the government needs to create a new unit of armed TSA officers to protect airport checkpoints.
