Hubbard city and township police officers are honing their skills on how to respond to an active shooter situation.

Officers shot live fire at targets that represented active shooters inside a makeshift shoot house set up to represent a school, office or home.

The drill tests the officer’s decision making skills with pictures of targets holding a gun or holding a hostage.

“We're teaching one police officer, the first officer on scene, to get inside the building, get inside the school and stop the killing. Whereas years ago, we were waiting for 3-4 officers to get there before we even enter a building and this is showing one officer,” said Sgt. Christopher Moffitt, city of Hubbard police department.

This is the third phase of training for officers.
