LAPD SWAT’s Dramatic “Terror Alert” Drill (VIDEO+PHOTOS)

The images could easily be mistaken for a Hollywood blockbuster, but instead, the dramatic action was merely a counter terrorism drill hosted by the Los Angeles Police Department.

LAPD SWAT team members engaged actors and cops posing as terrorists during a live demo on the streets of downtown LA for the 2013 National Homeland Security Conference.

According to officials in LA, the purpose of the drill was to highlight various counter terrorism tactics in response to gunmen and weapons of mass destruction.
