(London Daily Mail) An over-the-top instructional video has been released from a Homeland Security department on what to do if you are caught up in a mass shooting.

The six-minute tape, complete with pulsating soundtrack and blood spatter, advises that the best way to survive is follow three steps – run, hide or as a last resort, fight.

The clip was produced by the Houston Police Department in Alabama and published on November 5 by the state’s Homeland Security department. It depicts the nightmare which unfolds as a sole gunman stalks employees in an office building.
