TRIB Live

Pittsburgh and Allegheny County police along with the FBI will hold an active shooter drill Thursday night in Squirrel Hill.

The drill will take place from 8 p.m. to midnight at the Jewish Community Center, 5738 Forbes Ave.

Darlington Road will be closed from St. Edmund’s Way to Murray Avenue.  

Residents may notice a large police presence in the area.

The exercise is closed to the public and the media.

The exercise is to ensure the area is prepared and ready to respond in an active shooter situation. The exercise will include apprehending a shooter, evacuations and treating victims at the scene.

At least 50 volunteers from the Squirrel Hill community and the Jewish Community Center staff will serve as role players for the exercise.

  1. Wow…..A drill. Who would’ve thought?

    Gee..if it’s a drill, why don’t they let the media know about ahead of time, rather than telling everyone that it’s real?

    Oh that’s right, because it’s “Actively” trying to get people used to it all and make them think that it’s real in order to get the government to play “wag the dog” and pass more draconian laws.
