FILE - In this June 1, 2019, file photo, a law enforcement official stands at an entrance to a municipal building that was the scene of a shooting the day before in Virginia Beach, Va. Police responding to the deadly mass shooting were unable to confront the gunman at one point because they didn’t have the key cards needed to open doors on the second floor. Whether the delay contributed to the death toll is unclear, but the episode illustrated how door-lock technology that is supposed to protect people can hamper police and rescue workers in an emergency.

Ned Carlstrom is shown at his home in Chesapeake, Va., Sunday, June 2, 2019. Carlstrom told The Associated Press on Sunday that he locked eyes with the shooter, DeWayne Craddock, twice but didn’t exchange any words. He can only guess why Craddock killed 12 people but spared him, never even pointing a gun at him. Carlstrom said he initially thought Craddock was pretending to be an active shooter for a drill because his gun looked like a prop, and he didn’t point it at him. The harrowing reality set in when Carlstrom looked outside and saw police officers drag away a fatally wounded contractor. (AP Photo/Michael Kunzelman)
