Camp Lejeune holds active shooter drill

CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. (WNCT) – Camp Lejeune held its first active shooter drill at a school in three years.

Six emergency response units worked together in the scenario at Brewster Middle School.

The simulation featured two active shooters and a hostage situation. Part of the drill also included the Emergency Response Center at the Naval Hospital.

“Especially in an active shooter scenario, every minute is more lives at stake,” said Mjr. Adam McKillop, Operations Officer for Provost Marshal’s Office. “That shooter is constantly shooting at somebody so we want to make sure that we stop that as soon as possible. So quick response, mass response is our end goal.”

The victim portrayals were triaged on site and then transported over to the Naval Hospital.

Response teams engaged in a hostage negotiation process on site.
