Rep. Pocan Statement on Shooting this Morning which Injured 5, including Majority Whip Scalise
"These horrifying incidents have become far too commonplace and have absolutely no place in our society."
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) released the following statement after this morning’s shooting, which injured 5 individuals including Majority Whip Steve Scalise, current and former House staffers, and several Capitol Police officers:
“Today, I’m thinking of the victims of this senseless act of violence, including my colleague Rep. Steve Scalise, current and former staffers, and Capitol Police officers. I want to thank the Capitol Police officers and first responders for putting their lives on the line to prevent further injuries. These horrifying incidents have become far too commonplace and have absolutely no place in our society. Sadly, almost a year to the day of the Pulse massacre, we have yet another reminder of how prevalent gun violence is in our communities. As Congress holds another moment of silence today, I hope we will have a moment of action after it.”
