What More Can Be Done To Keep Schools Safe?

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

A picture posted on the Newtown Bee's website Friday morning after the very first reports of the shooting in the tiny Connecticut town showed some of the students, scared and confused, lined up in the parking lot outside the school.

The gruesome attack appears to be the nation's second-deadliest school shooting in history. Only the attack at Virginia Tech in 2007 is thought to be worse.

Sadly, this tragedy could happen anywhere, which is why police officers everywhere are trained for exactly this.

During the FOX 29 News at 5, we asked Chief Inspector Joe Sullivan, head of the Philadelphia Police Department's Counter-Terrorism Unit, what happens when they get that first call of an active shooter.

Watch Sullivan's complete interview in the above video clip.
