NYSP hold 'active shooting' training

LAKE PLACID (AP) -- Members of the New York State Police and other law enforcement agencies are wrapping up two days of training for responding to "active shooter" situations.
 
The training session began Wednesday and ends Thursday at the former W. Alton Jones Cell Science Center in Lake Placid.
 
State police officials say the training uses simulations to train officers how to enter a building and confront a person firing a weapon. The training includes classroom presentations as well as realistic exercises involving room and stairwell clearing techniques.
 
Instructors from the New York State Preparedness Training Center are leading the sessions.
