Active Shooter incidents in the United States have increased at an alarming rate. According to the FBI, in 2017 and 2018 there were 57 Active Shooter events which resulted in 806 casualties combined. The FBI defines an Active Shooter as “one or more individuals actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a populated area”.
Active Shooter does not necessarily mean that a firearm is used as the weapon, as there are known incidents of vehicles, knives and chemicals being used to inflict the same kind of mass casualty and damage to property. This is where the term Active Assailant is often used
