Note: The following is for informational use only and is not meant to frighten, it is intended to inform and to enhance personal safety.

"Active shooter" is the term used to describe a person who appears to be actively engaged in attempting to kill people in a populated area; in most cases, active shooters use firearm(s) and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. An armed intruder/active shooter can be anyone, young or old; avoid stereotypes. These situations are dynamic and evolve rapidly, demanding immediate deployment of law enforcement resources to stop the shooting and mitigate harm to innocent victims. Past experiences shows us that these situations are usually over very quickly, and you need to be prepared to protect yourself before law enforcement can get there.
