President Barack Obama met Monday with the family of the TSA agent who was killed in the shooting at Los Angeles International Airport earlier this month.

Gerardo Hernandez was the first TSA officer to die in the line of duty when 23-year-old Paul Ciancia allegedly went on a shooting rampage Nov. 1. Obama also met with Tony Grigsby and James Speer, two other TSA officers who were wounded in the incident, CNN reports.

Ciancia was shot and hospitalized before police charged him with the murder of a federal officer and commission of violence at an international airport.
