North Scott High School was filled with shouts, bangs and the sounds of police officers running through corridors Wednesday. The second day of Rescue Task Force training, hosted by Eldridge police, continued at North Scott High School with lots of actions and participants facing real-life scenarios, including "active shooters." Sessions, funded by the Scott County Attorney's Office, were held Tuesday and Wednesday. Participants included emergency responders from Davenport, Bettendorf, Eldridge, Princeton, Walcott and Geneseo. While the trial of Luke Andrews, 13, was under way in Scott County Court, Davenport, Eldridge police were getting training in active shooter situations at the high school. Last August, Andrews, then 12, pointed a loaded gun at his North Scott Junior High School teacher and attempted to fire at her. The gun's safety was on and no one was physically injured.
