Congresswoman Waters Statement on Annapolis Shooting
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43), Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee, released a statement following the tragic shooting this afternoon at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland, in which at least five people were killed:
“I am deeply saddened to learn of yet another mass shooting this afternoon, this time targeting the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland. This is yet another horrific and reprehensible incident that has resulted in the tragic loss of at least five innocent lives, and injuries to others. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.
“My heart aches for those who were lost and wounded, their loved ones, the staff of the Capital Gazette, and the people of Annapolis. It is my sincere hope that we find a way to end the constant threat posed by guns in the hands of violent people in our society. Let us stand together and overcome fear with strength, respect, and pride in the face of unconscionable violence.”
