MADISON - Shoppers around Madison's East Towne Mall may see some unusual clientelle in stores later today. The FBI's Milwaukee Division will be conducting a training session inside East Towne Mall this evening, after normal business hours.

The exercise is part of a national effort to prepare for attacks in public settings.

Additional federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, as well as emergency medical services, will be involved.

The public is advised to avoide the East Towne mall area during the training, and to not react to law enforcement activity.
