(WMC) - Shelby County Sheriff's Office gave WMC Action News 5 a real life simulation Tuesday morning of what officers go through when they have to make a decision on whether to shoot when dealing with a suspect.

It was all part of a special demonstration to enlighten people on what officers face in the line of duty.

WMC Action News 5's Ben Watson suited up with a bullet-proof vest, helmet, and paint gun to take the test.

Find out how he scored and what lessons he learned about the dangerous job officers have Tuesday on WMC Action News 5 at 6 p.m.
