MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL)--Run. Hide. Fight. Those are three words to remember if you ever find yourself in an active shooter situation. 

Tallahassee Police Officer Dave Northway says to run away in a zig-zag. This would make it hard if someone is trying to shoot you. If you can, get out of the area. Call 911. 

If you are stuck inside, hide. Find a place where the person cannot find you.

The third option is to fight. Grab whatever you can and use it as a weapon.
