RIVERTON - Students, staffers and board members at Central Wyoming College have been watching a video about how to respond to a shooting.

The video was created by the city of Houston and was released in the days after a gunman opened fire at a midnight "Batman" movie screening in Aurora, Colo., in July.

The video instructs people to try to escape. If that's not possible, it says they should find a hiding place, put their cellphones on silent and find objects they can use to fight back.

Campus safety director Steve Barlow said it's important for students to know their options in dangerous situations.

In November, a man killed his father, a Casper College computer science instructor, in front of his class before killing himself.
