In October 2010, a suspected gunman was reported on the Texas A&M University Campus. Campus and local police immediately responded. Fortunately, the gunman was only carrying a replica weapon. The training and support that we received from NERRTC and the TEEX Law Enforcement Training Division aided university and local responders as they deployed the Incident Command System in response to the incident.
