Rob Pincus explains the proper protocol for addressing the threat when a family member or friend is taken down by an active shooter. Rather than trying to be a hero and immediately running to the victim’s side, be a hero for everyone and make sure the active shooter has ceased his fire. This will assure that no more harm will be caused to people near the shooter and will guarantee that you have a safe line to your loved one. You can administer medical assistance or call the authorities after you address the threat and stop the active shooter. Once you are sure the area is safe and people are leaving the scene, you can holster your weapon and move on to the next step.
