SACRAMENTO — Changes could be coming to the way officers and medical teams respond to so-called active-shooter scenes under a California lawmaker’s bill.

Rodriguez says the move is in response to the shooting of a TSA agent at LAX in November. The suspect was taken into custody within minutes, but medical crews were unable to get to the agent for nearly half an hour.
