Local Firefighter Invents Tool to Keep Gunman out of Classroom

LICKING COUNTY (Adam Aaro) -- A local firefighter and SWAT medic has invented a device that he says could save lives in the event of a school or other active shooter situation inside a building.

Troy Lowe teaches shooter response training programs but over the years he noticed similar reactions from people involved.

"You'll see the fine motor skills go away when you increase the pressure a little bit," Lowe said.

And when seconds count, Lowe says easing that pressure is critical. So he invented "The Barracuda Intruder Defense System", a door security product he says is easy to use and can quickly be deployed.

"The idea is to secure yourself inside the room without opening the door," Lowe said.

There are a few different designs of the steel-based product, so you can apply it to an inward-facing door and an outward-facing door. And Lowe says the braces are strong.

"When they were tested in the factory, the door failed before the devices did," Lowe said. "There's potential to save a lot of lives."

Now regional manufacturer Bilco is selling the devices for around $100 apiece, although the company says to email barracuda@bilco.com for exact pricing. Lowe says the company's Zanesville plant will help in the manufacturing.
