Guam distribution center holds active shooter exercise

A 2000-2013 Federal Bureau of Investigation study reported approximately 160 active shooter incidents in the United States, which have occurred in commerce areas, education environments, open spaces, residences, houses of worship, health care facilities, military, and other government properties. “Here on Guam, a beautiful tropical island in the Pacific, we are not immune to such an occurrence of an active shooter situation,” said Macy Ooka, the DLA Distribution Guam, Marianas’ director. “I felt duty-bound to address this very real threat.” As a result, on October 27, the distribution center conducted its first ever full-scale active shooter exercise.
