OCALA, Fla. (WCJB) - Two nurses in Marion County are suing their employer after an active shooter exercise was all too real.

Twin lawsuits filed in circuit court claim that Lauren Palazini and Dominique Tucker were participating in new employee training last November when a man with a gun burst into the room.

The two women say the scenario went on for ten minutes before it was revealed the incident was staged.

They are claiming assault, false imprisonment, and emotional distress.
