MINOT, N.D.- Some Minot State University criminal justice students had the chance to feel what it's like to be a law enforcement agent responding to an active shooting scenario.

MSU teamed up with the Lake Region State College Peace Officer Training Program to offer a unique training exercise that puts the student in a simulation.

The simulator has more than 500 programmed shooter scenarios and allows you to go back to the film to critique your handling of the situation.

“There's a special camera. What it does is recognize the laser that are in the guns, so when you pull the trigger, that activates the camera which goes to the computer to read where the shot placement was at,” said Peace Officer Training Director John Maritato.

The simulator can also use footage from actual police body cameras to recreate situations for training.
