60 Minutes Highlights Shift in Active Shooter Response

A segment on 60 Minutes highlighted a shift in the methodology of responding to active shooter incidents.

Traditional thinking encouraged people to flee the area and call for help. Newer beliefs encourage “fighting” the assailant in anyway possible to stop them from injuring more people.
