NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Men with guns swarmed one World Trade Center Saturday morning, but luckily it was all just a drill.
Gun shots could be heard during the multi-agency drill, CBS 2 reported.
The “active shooter drill” used mock gunmen firing paint bullets.
The drill is designed to test how the NYPD, Port Authority, MTA, and Homeland Security would coordinate and interact during a real attack.
The drill follows several recent security issues at the site.
