VIDEO: Just over a week ago, six people were stabbed during a Hanukkah celebration inside a rabbi's home in New York. The suspect is now facing hate crime charges; and one day later in Texas, a gunman opened fire inside a church-- killing two people before a security team shot and killed him. Here in Tucson, two volunteer based organizations are giving faith based communities free active shooter response training. Christopher Taylor, a director with the Arizona Church Security Network (AZCSN), and Bruce Whitney, a director with ICSAVE (Integrated Community Solutions To Active Violence Events) are working together to educate the Arizona community. The training prepares folks to be immediate responders and gives them skills to be able to survive the first several minutes of an active killer event.
