The East Carolina University Police Department will conduct active shooter training May 14-18 from 5 p.m. to midnight in the Carol G. Belk Building on Charles Boulevard.

This training, a normal part of ECU’s emergency planning procedures, is designed to prepare law enforcement personnelto respond to an active shooter on campus. Belk will be the only building involved in the training scenarios.

According to the ECU Police, the exercise may involve the simulated use of weapons including blank rounds, and role players will be constantly entering the building from multiple entrances.
