FBI Active Shooter Training-21

In this Aug. 13, 2013 photo, FBI instructor Mike Copeland, second from left, prepares local police officers for an active shooter drill in a college classroom in Salisbury, Md., as part of an FBI program that teaches local law enforcement best practices for responding to mass shootings. The goal is to promote a standardized strategy as multiple local police departments -- invariably the first officers at any scene -- respond to the same shooting. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)
