Statement from Governor Lincoln D. Chafee Regarding Today's Situation at the University of Rhode Island

Statement

First and foremost, I am relieved and grateful that no one was seriously injured today at the University of Rhode Island.

I commend the Rhode Island State Police, local law enforcement officials, and URI public safety for their quick response and thorough, ongoing investigation into this matter.

While I am pleased that initial reports of an active shooter proved to be unfounded, incidents such as this offer an important opportunity to review our emergency operations, and that will certainly be the case here. We will take a close look at how this serious and potentially dangerous situation was handled.

Keeping students safe and secure is the most important responsibility of schools at all levels, and today's events are a reminder that we must be vigilant of the potential for dangerous situations to arise in our places of learning.
