Cecil deputies teach new ‘active shooter’ strategy
— Sean Ponte was “killed” by an intruding “shooter” along with 10 other fellow Sandy Cove Ministries employees hiding under desks inside a classroom during a simulation Tuesday.
Ponte, who is the campus
dining room manager, knew he and his co-workers would not survive when a woman portraying a shooter entered the room where they were hiding.
“It was terrible, even though it was a simulation,” Ponte said. “As soon as she came into the room, you wanted to do something but you knew you couldn’t, so you were just waiting for your turn.”
