Active shooter drills coming to Takoma Park

WASHINGTON — Takoma Park police announced Monday morning that they will be performing active shooter training later this week and early next week in the Maryland city.

In a tweet, police said they will be performing the drills at John Nevins Andrews School on Elm Avenue Dec. 12, Dec. 13, Dec. 19 and Dec. 20.
