Short Pump to hold emergency drill


If you are near Short Pump Town Center Sunday morning and see a lot of officers running around, there is no cause for alarm. It is all part of an emergency exercise designed with the public's safety in mind

Mall employees say from 7 a.m. to 11a.m., Henrico County Police will team with Henrico Fire and Homeland Security officials for a mock active shooter exercise. The exercise will take place before stores in the mall open for business. Some restaurants will be open during the exercise. The drill is scheduled to take place on the lower level of the mall near Macy's department store.

During the training exercise, certain areas of the mall will be restricted to customers. There will be more than 200 people participating.
