TEMPE, Ariz. -- Dozens of Tempe first responders -- police officers, firefighters and paramedics -- put their skills to the test during a drill on Saturday at Arizona State University.

The scenario involved a  shooting on campus in which the suspect, and several others, had been killed.

The ASU Alert, the university's emergency messaging system, was also tested. If there ever were a real emergency on campus, ASU Alert would send text messages and e-mails, as well as posting to Facebook and Twitter.
