Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) issued the following statement:

"I want to join Mayor Bogaard, Councilman Holden and other members of the community in expressing my condolences to the family of Kendrec McDade after the loss of their son. There have been many serious questions raised by the shooting, and four investigations have been launched to determine precisely what took place and to provide answers to the family and the community. I join my colleagues in urging these investigations to be thorough and impartial, and to proceed with the greatest sense of urgency.

"I know the community hungers for answers, and as a parent, I cannot imagine the grief of the McDade family. They will be in our thoughts and prayers as the investigations go forward, and as we learn how this tragedy took place and what steps can be taken to avoid another terrible loss like it in the future."
