An active shooter/armed intruder is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area. Active shooter/armed intruder situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Typically, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the suspect and mitigate harm to victims. Because these incidents are often over within minutes, before law enforcement arrives on the scene, individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter/armed intruder situation.
