What can you do to keep yourself safe in a situation like this?

Derek Dieter, CEO of Dieter Security, says you shouldn’t live in fear, but remain aware of your surroundings.

“Just be cognizant of the surroundings you’re at and then look for ways that you and your family can find a safe way to get out of the area," Dieter said. “You don’t want to be 100% paranoid but you should have some of that in you to make sure that yourself, and more importantly your family, is protected when you see things that may occur.”
