Torres Statement on San Bernardino Shooting

December 2, 2015
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC - Today, Rep. Norma J. Torres (D-Pomona) released the following statement in response to the shooting at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California:

 

“As this situation continues to unfold, my heart goes out to the victims and their families.  These kinds of tragedies are always heartbreaking, but today, it has hit frighteningly close to home.  Not only is this facility located within my previous state Senate district, but constituents of the 35th congressional district receive services here as do countless others throughout the region.  I commend our law enforcement and emergency personnel for their swift, coordinated response to this incident and their efforts to secure the area.   I’m sure we will soon learn more about the perpetrator or perpetrators and their motives, but at this point in time I only pray for those affected and assure them that the Inland Empire community has them in our thoughts.”
