LEBANON (AP) — The police chief in Lebanon, New Hampshire, says the Orlando mass shooting underscores the need for active shooter workshops which his department scheduled weeks ago — the first of which takes place on Friday.

The Valley News reports that Chief Richard Mello says the shooting June 12 at Pulse nightclub that left 49 dead reaffirms that the active shooter scenario "has no boundaries."

Authorities are still trying to find out what motivated Omar Mateen to carry out the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

The free civilian courses are being offered by the Lebanon police on June 24 and July 7 at the Kilton Public Library. Mello says more than two dozen people have expressed interested and upward of 10 business owners want training sessions at their workplaces.
