CHICO, Calif. - More than 100 officers from several agencies in Butte county converged on the Chico High School campus for a full-scale active-shooter drill.

The campus was closed down for the exercise, while officers practiced their skills. 

Chico Police Chief Mike O'Brien said these drills are necessary to practice.

"We will be training an active shooting scenarios for years to come. We can't ever be prepared enough so you will see these scenarios not only at school campuses but other locations," O'Brien said. 

O'Brien said his officers and other agencies learned valuable lessons during a similar drill at Pleasant Valley High School last month.
