"Starting in January of 2017, Everett Police will begin a series of monthly scenarios to train officers for an active shooter situation at the Everett Mall. An active shooter is defined by the US Department of Homeland Security as an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area where there is no pattern or method to the selection of victims.
