Law enforcement officials want to know why it took 33 minutes for TSA officer Gerardo Hernandez to get help after he was shot at Los Angeles International Airport.

Hernandez died after he was shot inside an airport terminal Nov. 1. Officials who watched surveillance footage of the shooting say Hernandez lay bleeding for 33 minutes before he was wheeled out to paramedics.

Police had not declared the terminal safe to enter, but officials want to know whether paramedics could have entered the airport sooner.

Suspected gunman, Paul Ciancia, was shot by airport police and taken into custody five minutes after the attack started.
