Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), issued the following statement in response to the events in Aurora, Colorado:
"We can't possibly know what is happening in a single deranged mind. But once again a random act of violence has taken innocent lives. I know local law enforcement will have the total support of their communities as they conduct their investigation.
"Along with all Americans, my prayers go out to the families of those killed or injured in the shootings in Aurora, Colorado."
