LOS ANGELES (AP) — Members of Congress and local officials will meet at Los Angeles International Airport to discuss the lessons learned from an attack that killed a security officer and injured three people last fall.

Friday's hearing before the House Committee on Homeland Security's subcommittee on transportation security comes after the airport operator issued a report last week highlighting major lapses in the emergency response to the shooting. The committee will also discuss the findings of a Transportation Security Administration report this week reviewing airport security at nearly 450 airports nationwide.

Paul Ciancia is accused of targeting TSA officers in his attack, killing Officer Gerardo Hernandez and wounding two other officers and a passenger.

The New Jersey native has pleaded not guilty to 11 federal charges, including murder of a federal officer.
