Tonawanda, NY - A hostage escapes, at right, as a gun battle between a bad guy, left, and Border Patrol Agents soon ends in a spray of bullets. The trainees were using live non-lethal ammunition called "Simunition," one of which can be seen traveling through the air , a blur of orange at right.
Border Patrol Agents took part in "Active Shooter" exercises at a training facility in Tonawanda.
