Active shooter drill

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

It's a drill that tests the limits of emergency responders.

A special training exercise was held at Lehigh Valley Hospital Cedar Crest Saturday.

The exercise forced responders to deal with a mass shooting with a gunman still at the scene.

Organizers say the goal of the event was to gauge the coordination between the hospital and the first responders.
