Delray Police: What Would You do During an Active-Shooter Event?

(TNS) - Religious leaders and business owners on Monday were forced to confront an otherwise unimaginable possibility: What would you do if a gunman opened fire on a crowd here in Delray Beach?  

It isn’t easy to think about, but an all too common reality, said Delray Beach Police Chief Jeff Goldman, whose department offered active-shooter training to locals. 

“Someone asked me the other day, ‘Why are you doing this?’ And I had that deer-in-the-headlight look,” Goldman said. “If you haven’t been watching television,and you haven’t been seeing what’s going on around the world … it’s sad. It’s just sad.”
