Students join mass shooting exercise

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM)- There were hundreds of people who helped make a mass shooting exercise in Muskegon as real as possible. For some, it meant going face-to-face with the 'shooters'.

17-year old Nick Sapone was one of the victims. "I want to go into law enforcement, so it's a good thing for me to practice. Good experience."

Nick and the most of the other victims are local students. As they put on their best act, some of them acted as though they had been shot while others were not injured, but shaken from the mass shooting.

As paramedics tended to the victims, the media arrived. An officer, who's never done an interview, is assigned the task. It's not perfect, but a learning experience. "We have two suspects in custody at this time, with several injuries."
