Md. Mosque Hosts Active Shooter Training After Spike In Hate Incidents

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Active shooter training is being held at a Maryland mosque in response to what the Council on American-Islamic Relations calls “a recent spike in hate incidents targeting mosques nationwide.”

“We encourage local community members and leaders of all faiths to attend and learn how they can prepare themselves in the event of a potentially-deadly crisis situation,” said CAIR Maryland Outreach Manager Dr. Zainab Chaudry.

“In this political climate, it’s more important than ever to adequately increase security for minority communities that face growing threats.”
