FSU police honored for responding to active shooter
TALLAHASSEE, Fla -- The officers who helped prevent a shooting at Florida State’s library from turning into a bigger tragedy were honored by the Governor and cabinet Tuesday.
Five officers were awarded the medal of heroism for their actions on November 20th, 2014. They responded to an active shooter situation at FSU’s Strozier library where an alumni turned gunman shot and injured three people.
“They do this every single day. This was one incident which they were trained for, they responded adequately, and they did what they had to do. But they do it every single day to keep our campus safe, and I’m sure officers around the state do the same," FSU President John Thrasher said.
The officers shot and killed the shooter while responding.
