The Paso Robles Police and Fire Departments held an active shooter training exercise at City Hall Friday.

The library, city hall, and surrounding streets were shut down during the training.

Businesses are expected to reopen for their normal business hours on Saturday. Streets reopened after 8 p.m. Friday.

"What we've learned through all of these active shooters all over the country is that it's really important that we get in there as fast as possible to render aid as quickly as we can so that's really what we're trying to focus on," says Commander Caleb Davis, Paso Robles Police Department.

This is one of many active shooter trainings that take place across the Central Coast.
