Duluth police teamed up with St. Luke’s Hospital to train in an active shooter situation Tuesday.

The scene was set inside the Pavilion Clinic Building on East 1st Street.

That’s where emergency room workers handled victims of gunshot wounds.

The drill was a chance for the hospital to test its mass casualty plan and communication with police to make sure it is all seamless.

“The primary thing tonight is we’ve never done an evening drill before. This is the first time we’ve done a full scale drill after working hours, so for us there’s a lot of moving parts that we want to see if we can actually do,” said Mike Marturano, safety officer and emergency manager at St. Luke’s Hospital.

St. Luke’s is required to do two emergency drills per year to maintain its accreditation.
