Video gives advice for reacting to mass shootings

Hank Silverberg,

WASHINGTON – It is a frightening thought. Someone coming into your workplace with a gun and opening fire.

The mass shootings this summer at an Aurora, Colo. movie theater, and at a Sikh Temple in Wisonsin, as well as 2007’s shooting a Virginia Tech have raised everyone’s awareness.

Now, the Prince Georges County police department has posted a video about how to react.

The video, produced by the City of Houston, with homeland security funds, tells people their first response to the gunman should be to run.

The second response, hide, and the third response some kind of resistance.
