HOUSTON, TX – Thankfully no one was hurt in the Georgia school shooting, and no one was injured when shots were fired at University of Houston-Downtown!

Not so fast — these shots weren’t real.

They were all a part of Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training or ‘ALERRT’ for short.

With tragedies striking all too often these days, police from all over the Houston area are taking part in drills to make sure these events can be stopped in a fast and effective way.

UHD’s College of Public Services allowed the trainees to use the school hallways for the drills, making as realistic of scenarios as possible.

Hopefully this training will lead to similar non-tragic endings like what was seen in Georgia.
