Statement on the Shooting at the Washington Navy Yard

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) issued the following statement on today's shooting at the Washington Navy Yard:

"This has been a dark day, and we know more of them lie ahead for the families of the victims. Hoping that they find comfort -- and answers -- is at the top of our minds. Next, we ought to say "thank you' to the first responders and law enforcement professionals -- including Capitol Police -- who did their jobs and saved lives.

"These events strike a particularly personal chord for all of us on Capitol Hill. Every day, a special breed of men and women go to work at the Navy Yard, and they do so just blocks from our Capitol. These are our neighbors and our defenders. So I would ask all the members, officers, and staff of the House of Representatives to take a moment tonight to think about everyone at the Navy Yard, and keep them in your hearts. I pray that we never forget their service and sacrifice."
