If you see FBI agents, local SWAT teams and fire departments congregating at Greenwood Park Mall this weekend, don’t worry, the mall isn’t under siege.
Federal agents and local emergency responders will rush to the mall Sunday evening after closing for a terrorist attack training exercise. The event in Greenwood will start at 7 p.m. and is one of several the FBI has hosted in cities around the U.S., including Boston, Atlanta, Seattle and Jacksonville.
In the scenario, police have received a report of some suspicious shoppers dropping packages around the mall and then walking away. When the first police arrive to investigate, the terrorists start shooting and wound several officers then take hostages and scatter throughout the mall, Johnson County Sheriff’s Office SWAT commander Maj. Jerry Pickett said.
