The longest two minutes | Active shooter training at Tahoma Junior High

Tahoma Junior High participated in an active shooter training Tuesday morning

Only two minutes passed from the time the initial faux 911 call was made to when the first two officers arrived on scene at Tahoma Junior High for an active shooter simulation Tuesday morning.

Student actors with makeup pretended to be victims during the drill while a police officer, dressed in jeans and a sweatshirt, acted as an outraged parent. The suspect was taken down outside the library on the second floor by the first two responding officers.

Officers from the Maple Valley and Covington police departments, King County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Service participated in the drill.
