BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office will hold an active shooter training seminar for citizens and business owners at Goose Creek High Tuesday evening. 

"While Berkeley County enjoys a great quality of life and safe environment to live, work and play
- there is also a need to know what to do if you encounter an active shooter situation," Sheriff Lewis said in a statement to Live 5 News. "We hope that this program will give citizens the tools to know what to do in such a situation."

The course instructors said attendees will not be awarded a certificate at the end of the class, but will leave with "knowledge and skill" to handle
an active shooter situation.
