Phil Mudd, a former FBI senior intelligence adviser, said at this point in the investigation, police are concerned with two primary things: Making sure the building is secure and finding the shooter, or shooters.
“Right now, you’ve got to ensure this is the only person – if they picked up something already – and that the facility is secure,” he told CNN on Monday as law enforcement are responding to the situation.
He said this is not an easy task, and it will take time to make sure it is safe.
“In a building of that size, that you can clear the building and guarantee that nobody else is in there, think about every storage component in that building, every refrigerated room. It will take a while to clear it,” Mudd said.
Charles Ramsey, a former Philadelphia police commissioner, said officials need to make sure the building is secure before releasing more information.
“They may give some preliminary information, but it won’t be much. It will be pretty sketchy at this point in time. These scenes are very chaotic in the early stages. So it’s got to settle down,” he said.
“Number one is clear the scene, make sure you eliminate whatever threat may be there and that that building is totally secure,” Ramsey added.
