OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -

Experts from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will be in the metro this week to teach the Jewish community how to respond to active shooter situations.

The community is still healing after a gunman shot and killed a grandfather and his grandson and another woman at a nearby senior care center.

On Friday at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City, experts are holding a workshop to train law enforcement and community members how to react to an active shooter.

On April 13 in the parking lot of the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, prosecutors say 73-year-old Frazier Glenn Cross killed 69-year-old William Corporon, 69, and his grandson, 14-year-old Reat Griffin Underwood.

Prosecutors said Cross then went to the nearby Village Shalom senior care facility and killed 53-year-old Terri Lamanno who was there to visit her mother.

Management executives from area nonprofit organizations, as well as private businesses, have been invited to participate in the workshop. More than 150 people have registered for the full workshop.

The workshop is one of a number of steps that have been taken to enhance security at the campus following the April shootings.

Those changes include an armed presence during the majority of operating hours, hiring a security director and conducting a security readiness assessment of the center.
