From the article, it appears that 'lock the doors and nothing bad will happen to you' is the (continuing) mantra:
A mall spokeswoman said the facility also was on lockdown, effective beginning at 10:45 a.m.

Shoppers leaving stores were told by police to get back inside. Others arriving at the shopping center in their vehicles cars were told to remain in them. A police helicopter circled overhead.

"This is terrifying," shopper Nancy Petrillo, of Garden City, said. "After what happened in Kenya, everyone is already on edge.

As of about 10:50 a.m. all Garden City Schools have been in "lock out" mode, meaning students are "going on with their day" and "no one is allowed in the building," said Cindy Morris, secretary to Robert Feirsen, superintendent.
Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
When those fail, aim for center mass.
