FBI Active Shooter Training-15

In this Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2013 photo, a police officer carries a simulation handgun in his holster as FBI instructor Mike Sotka, back center, gives them a critique after an active shooter drill 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)
