ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-  The campus of Umpqua Community College will re-open today but classes won't resume for another week. Students, staff and faculty will be able to retrieve belongings left behind when a gunman opened fire Thursday. Nine people were killed by the shooter who later killed himself.

It seems that more than ever before, there's a need for schools, universities, even churches, to be prepared for the possibility of an active shooter crisis.
