Randall Jeppesen reportingOn this anniversary of the Virginia Tech shootings, local colleges and universities are getting ready to use a video to teach students how to react if a mass shooting ever happened here.

The video is called "Shots Fired." Brigham Young University Police Lt. Arnold Lemmon says every BYU student, faculty and staff member will receive an e-mail this week encouraging them to watch the film. "[It] teaches them how to respond in an active gunman situation," he explained.

He says the video teaches three outs: "Get out, hide out, or take out, which means defend yourself," he said.

Utah State University and Westminster College also are among the 200 colleges and businesses that will use the film as a teaching tool.
