BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A scene at the County Courthouse in Buffalo may have looked all too real to passerby, and that was by design.

Police staged a joint drill to prepare for the event of an active shooter in western New York. Buffalo Fire, Buffalo Police and Buffalo SWAT teamed up to carry out the joint drill.

Part of Niagara Street was temporarily closed to the public but the courthouse remained open during the drill.
