CARLTON — At a community forum tonight, police will discuss the best ways to respond to shooting situations.

“Active Shooter — Safety Response for Citizens” is set for 6:30 p.m. in the American Legion Hall, across the street from Carlton City Hall. There is no charge.

Chief Kevin Martinez and his officers will discuss how citizens should respond if they find themselves in a situation in which a person is threatening others with a deadly weapon. They will also discuss signs to look for parents, friends, employers, school personnel and the community in an effort to prevent a shooting tragedy.
