Nearly 320 members of local law enforcement and first responders gathered at Camp Williams for active shooter training.

The event is hosted by the Utah National Guard’s 19th Special Forces Group from 7 a.m to 5 p.m.

Following the active shooter situation in downtown Salt Lake City on April 10, this type of situation is on a lot of people's minds.

Mike Clumpner, an active officer out of North Carolina and representative of Threat Suppression, made his way to Utah share his knowledge.

He says, active shooter situations are on the rise.

“We want communities to make sure that they are planning, preparing and that they are ready to respond."

He told 2News active shooter situations are a community problem and it requires a whole community to help. This is one reason why multiple agencies were invited to attended the training.

Because of the sensitivity of some information, 2News was asked to step outside for the majority of the training.

Clumpner says they will go over previous active shooter scenarios, and how law enforcement can learn from the past and the psychology of shooters.
