LUBBOCK, Texas — A full-scale active shooter exercise is scheduled at Monterey High School during the morning on Monday, June 6.

There will be noticeable increase in law enforcement and first responders in the area surrounding the school.

“The public is asked to keep in mind that this is just an exercise, and does not warrant any concern,” a press release from the City of Lubbock said.

While public interest surrounding the exercise is high, due to safety concerns, no additional participants will be allowed inside the exercise perimeter.

The exercise will test the proactive steps the City of Lubbock, first responders, emergency management team, local school districts and hospitals take to ensure an effective and efficient response should the need arise
