LSU officials want to make the public aware it's conducting an active shooter training drill today.
The LSU Police Department and the National Center for Biomedical Research and Training/Academy of Counter-Terrorist Education will hold the drill at the Student Recreation Complex from about 9:30 to 11 a.m.
Due to the drill, the UREC will be closed from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
LSU officials say anyone on or near campus should be advised that during the drill, a blank gun will be fired sporadically and a lot of first responders will be on campus.
This is all part of the drill and is not cause for concern.
