Situational awareness is kinda key...
So according to this article from Fox, a man walked on to a commuter train in San Fran, literally waved a gun around for a few minutes before randomly shooting a student, and no one noticed until shots rang out. As much as I would like to rant about that for a while, I will instead refer you to this discussion of Cooper's color codes. Please read and apply, and keep your head on a swivel.
