FBI Active Shooter Training-9

In this Aug. 13, 2013 photo, Maryland State Police Sgt. Renee White hands a police officer a simulation handgun as they prepare for a series of active shooter drills in a college classroom building 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)
