Active Shooter is defined as an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area; in most cases, active shooters use firearms and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. Armed assailants and “active shooters” create highly unpredictable situations. The following guidelines are based on federal training guidelines and best practices. An alternate response may be necessary depending upon the actual situation.
