BELLEVUE, Wash. -- A new video game allows players to play as an “active shooter” in schools. Now the game is drawing backlash from parents.

Around noon on Friday a Washington mother of three found out about the game, titled “Active Shooter” and created a petition on Change.org for the company to take it down.

The game is set to be available for download on Steam, a digital distribution platform for video games. Steam is developed by the Bellevue, Wash. – based company, Valve.

Valve itself did not create the game but is providing the platform for people to access it.
