Officers came from as far away as North Carolina on Thursday to participate in a specialized active shooter training course at Central Elementary in Shreveport, La.
According to KTBS3 in Shreveport:
During Thursday’s course, the officers entered a school building alone, listening for shots, screams, explosions, and basically anything that may provide immediate information about the situation.
Volunteer role-players added to the chaos, running through hallways, screaming, one even throwing an unexpected explosive device.
While Thursday’s training took place in a school, KTBS3 has reported that training sessions are also being held in malls, concerts, theaters and military installations.
