An active shooter is an armed person who has used deadly physical force on other persons and continues to do so while having unrestricted access to additional victims. Active shooters have caused a paradigm shift in law enforcement and security training and tactics, especially as these persons do not necessarily expect to escape or even survive these situations.
The traditional approach of first responders acting to assemble a cordon around the crisis zone, and then waiting for specialized special response units such as a Special Response Team (SRT) or Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team to spearhead a resolution is not a viable option. First Responders must immediately confront a developing high-risk crisis and contain same in order to preserve innocent lives.
