SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of California and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are holding an active shooter training for several houses of worship in Sacramento.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, over 100 faith leaders are expected to attend today's presentation.
