OKLAHOMA CITY -

Several law enforcement agencies took part in a training exercise to simulate a complex terrorist attack in a public venue on Tuesday at the Quail Springs Mall in Oklahoma City.

Hosted by the Oklahoma Division of the FBI, the training exercise began at 1 a.m. at the Quail Springs Mall, located at 2501 W. Memorial Road.

Several agencies participated in the exercise, including FBI Oklahoma City, Oklahoma City Police Department, Edmond Police Department, Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office, Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Oklahoma City Fire Department, EMSA, and Quail Springs Mall Security.

Officials say they made every effort to not interfere with normal mall operations. The public may have seen law enforcement activity at the mall from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. Tuesday. Residents were asked to avoid the mall property during this time.

According to the FBI, this training exercise was not in response to any current threat. Training exercises are designed to test and validate response plans. After each exercise, authorities will assess their response and make necessary improvements to their plans.
