Press Release

ONTARIO, CA – Today, Rep. Norma J. Torres (D-Pomona) issued the following statement in response to the shooting at North Park Elementary in San Bernardino, California:

“As we learn more about today’s shooting at North Park Elementary, my heart breaks for those who were killed and injured and for the young students who have had their innocence shattered by this tragedy.  I send my condolences to the victims, their families, and the entire San Bernardino community, and I commend our local law enforcement and emergency personnel for their swift, coordinated response.  Schools are supposed to be safe havens, and tragedies like today’s are becoming far too commonplace in our society.  While we are still gathering the facts, I am determined to do what I can to support those impacted by today’s shooting and take any actions necessary to protect our community and prevent these senseless acts of violence from ever happening again.”
