Gunman scenario planned for Columbia SWAT training

The Columbia SWAT team will have active shooter training at the Columbia Mall Monday night.

The Columbia Mall will be swarming with police and their vehicles Monday night for scheduled training.

The mall asked the SWAT team to perform an active shooter training on location at 2300 Bernadette Drive. The training will occur inside the mall, and no one will be allowed inside once the mall is closed.

Vehicles, officers and volunteers will be on location starting at 6 p.m., although the actual training exercise will not begin until the mall closes at 9 p.m.

Training is scheduled to be completed at midnight.
