NYC emergency responders go through active shooter drill
NEW YORK - Emergency responders in New York City staged a drill simulating active shooters in a Manhattan subway station in the wake of the Paris attacks last week.
The scenario on Sunday morning in Lower Manhattan came just days before one of city's the most high-profile events, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The drill has been planned for some time but got a last-minute update after the deadly Paris attacks: Officials added an attacker wearing a suicide vest.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says the drill showed that the city is "fundamentally prepared."
Police Commissioner William Bratton says exercises like the subway drill "are vitally necessary" and provide lessons for emergency responders.
