Greenville, South Carolina (WSPA)-Some say it’s important to be prepared for such a situation here in Upstate following a recent shooting at a mall in the United States.
One of the recent shootings at the mall occurred in Durham, North Carolina.
After the shooting on Black Friday, three people were shot dead and three were injured.
“One of them was a 10-year-old boy who was taken to the hospital with a life-threatening injury,” a Durham police officer told the media.
Durham police chief said the incident happened between two groups of people who knew each other.
Another mall shot took place in Tacoma, Washington on Black Friday.
According to police, a man was seriously injured at Tacoma Mall, the city’s largest shopping mall.
People heard multiple ammunition, but said the suspect was not detained.
“I think violence is on the rise nationwide,” said Chad Ayers, a shooter training expert.
Ayers says he is never exempt from what is happening in our area.
“Currently, there is a lot of stress across the United States, and holidays can cause a lot of stress even where people are trying to feed their families,” Ayers said.
Ayers says shoppers should do everything they can in case it happens.
“I don’t care about my surroundings, get caught up in my iPhone, or check my Christmas list, but if something goes wrong, or if violence occurs, where is the fastest way to escape by evacuating? It’s just a matter of knowing what it is. It’s the best chance we can live, “Ayers said.
He says people today want to see everything in video, but in the context of active shooters, that could mean endangering your life …
“I don’t know if they’re trying to gather evidence of law enforcement, but it’s not your job. Your job is to survive,” Ayers said.
Ayers says it’s just as important to have the mall ready and equipped properly in case of an emergency.
“It is advisable to install a hemostatic device that is completely different from the basic first aid. The basic first aid kit includes tweezers, band-aid and eye wash, but at critical times. We are looking at ways to stop heavy bleeding, “Ayers explains.
