A church in western South Dakota is hosting security training this weekend as a result of the mass shooting at a Texas church earlier this month.

The training will be held at the church in Box Elder where participants will learn how to identify suspicious individuals and secure a facility should someone open fire.

Local police, who are helping organize the event, say interest in such training has increased dramatically after the shooting at a small church in Texas killing 25 people.
