South Jordan • More than 60 volunteers playing the role of patients participated Wednesday in the second phase of the largest mass-casualty drill in state history.

Megaplex Theatres in South Jordan was the scene. The setting and scenario were meant to mimic the 2012 shooting at an Aurora, Colo., theater.

An Oct. 15 drill at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School in Salt Lake City mimicked the shooting last year at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn.
