Active shooter drill at Walter Reed Military Hospital Creates Real Alarm
About two hours ago, reports of an active shooter at Walter Reed Medical in Bethesda, MD were surfacing. U.S. Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger was there when he received a notice of an active shooter. A medical center employee also reported hiding in a closet with patients during the event. Early reports are that no mention of a drill or training were present with the alert.
The above Twitter post from a medical center employee shows the active shooter warning. No mention of a drill.
Twitter posts from Congressman Ruppersberger also say there was no indication of a drill.
We are guessing that you don’t want to scare a Congressman (or employees and patients) and have them hide in a back room while a training drill occurs. There will no doubt be an investigation into how this drill turned into a real emergency.
