On Monday, the Boston University Police Department shared a video call “Run. Hide. Fight. Surviving an Active Shooter Event” on its website that helps answer that question.
The video, produced by the city of Houston Mayor’s Office of Public Safety, has been popping up across the web. It takes viewers through a workplace shooting in less than 6 minutes.
“If you are ever to find yourself in the middle of an active shooter event, your survival may depend on whether or not you have a plan. The plan does not have to be complicated,” the narrator says.
The video was posted on YouTube on July 23; just three days after a gunman entered the midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” in Aurora, Colorado and killed 12 people. It has nearly 500,000 views.
