LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lone Star Shooting Sports in Lubbock hosted an active shooter training clinic on Tuesday.
The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events class was taught by Corporal Randy Baker of the Texas Tech Police Department.
"What's going on across the country has really brought it to the forefront again. We decided that we would reach out to Texas Tech police officer Randy Baker. We decided to host an active shooter course here in town. This course is really designed to help you if you are involved in something like that. It teaches you how to avoid, how to fortify the position you're in, or even possibly defend if necessary."
Thomas Larson, an owner of Lone Star Shooting Sports, told KCBD the goal of the clinic is to cover the history of active shooter situations and inform civilians on what their options may be if they end up in one of those situations. The presentation is founded on the Avoid, Deny, Defend strategy.
"This is the first time we've hosted an active shooter class. We have 50 seats that filled up within 24 hours."
Lone Star Shooting Sports says they will continue to offer these classes as long as the demand is high.
