Rep. Ted Lieu, Ridley-Thomas and Senator Ben Allen Statement On UCLA Campus Shooting:

Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D | Los Angeles County) issued the following statement in light of yesterday’s tragedy at UCLA.

“My thoughts and prayers – and those of my entire staff – are with those affected by today’s tragic events at UCLA.  My office stands ready to assist in any way.  I also want to thank the first responders, the LAPD, the LAFD, the FBI and UCLA security for their fine service today.  This is obviously a difficult day for the Bruin family – for the student body, for their families, for the university’s faculty and staff.   I have no doubt that the university will persevere as we move forward together to understand today’s tragedy more fully, mourn those who have been lost, comfort those who have been affected and look for ways to help prevent violence at our schools and universities.”

Assembly member Sebastian Ridley-Thomas (D-Westwood) and Senator Ben Allen (D- Santa Monica) today issued the following statement in reaction to the shooting incident at UCLA:

“We express our sincere condolences to the families of the victims of an apparent murder-suicide on the UCLA campus this morning.  Our hearts also are with the students, faculty and administrators on campus who have gone through this frightening ordeal.  Our concern, first and foremost, is for the safety of the entire UCLA community, and we will continue to be in close contact with the California Highway Patrol, Los Angeles Police Department, and UCLA campus police to ensure they have the resources needed to address the situation.”
