TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Hundreds of faith-based communities are coming together to learn what to do if someone walks into their place of worship and starts shooting.

More than 600 people gathered Thursday at the Tallahassee Antique Car Museum to create an open dialogue on how to be prepared and prevent an active shooting before it happens.

A question-and-answer session was offered after the event.

Some of the questions concerned how to implement security in a church and what open-carry policies are in churches.
