UNICOI COUNTY, Tenn. -

If you see authorities responding to Unicoi County High School on Wednesday, chances are it’s just a drill.

We're told authorities plan to use a drill tomorrow to evaluate the response and critical planning in the event of an active shooter situation. 

Organizers tell us two mock gunmen will be armed with a shotgun and a handgun. Both will be loaded with non-lethal ammunition.

We're told several law enforcement agencies will be responding to the drill.

We're told the drill will begin around 10 o'clock in the morning.
