The office hallway could be in Anytown, America, with its gray walls, bad lighting and piles of photocopy paper. That is, except for this distinguishing feature: an unknown man, armed with a weapon, who popped into view.
"Do I want to shoot this guy?" I asked the law enforcement trainer beside me.
The reply came fast: "Well, he's got a gun."
My weapon: a Glock equipped with a laser, not live ammunition — and thank goodness for that.
