March 29, 2009: A gunman killed five family members, including his two children, and wounded his wife at a townhome in Santa Clara, Calif., before killing himself.

A technical college in northeastern Wisconsin is teaching a class on how to deal with a mass shooting scenario.

Michael Molnar is public safety training coordinator at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. Molnar says the training at its Sturgeon Bay campus is open to the public, but geared for business owners. He says the class in May was scheduled after training was requested.

Molnar said the course will help attendees prepare for an active shooter scenario and learn how police would respond.

Green Bay Public Schools security administrator Barb Dorff told WBAY-TVĀ  it's wise to prepare for such a scenario, given the number of shootings that have happened in a variety of places in recent times.
