Aguilar Responds to North Park Elementary School Shooting

Rep. Pete Aguilar issued the following statement in response to the shooting at North Park Elementary School in San Bernardino:

“I’m devastated by the shooting at North Park Elementary School in San Bernardino. This is like a punch to the gut for our community. My sincere and heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by this heinous act. I’m in touch with the San Bernardino Police Department and am monitoring the situation as it unfolds. Once again, we’ve seen the bravery of our region’s first responders who are willing to put their lives on the line to end the violence and keep students safe.

We will learn more in the coming hours and days about how today’s events came to pass.  But there are some things that we know now:  This is a tragedy for our community and there are children, teachers, staff and families who will be dealing with what happened today for a long time.  As we have done before, we need to come together to support those affected and rededicate ourselves to ending gun violence in our community.”

Congressman Pete Aguilar represents California’s 31st Congressional District, which includes the City of San Bernardino.
