Active-shooter training pays off at El Paso Walmart

August 8, 2019

When a gunman approached a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, this past weekend, store manager Robert Evans knew just what to do. Walmart employees, like those at other major retailers, retail centers, schools and concert venues, receive training on how to respond to, and survive, such attacks.

Evans ran into the store and sent a “code brown” (Walmart's internal code for a shooting incident) into his two-way radio, alerting staff to begin herding customers toward back exits and other avenues of safety, reports The New York Times. Some staff went to the aid of people who had already been shot, and they continued to do this even after the assailant was apprehended.

Walmart says all the employees at its thousands of stores are trained on what to do when an attack occurs, mostly by watching videos.
