Garner Park Violence

August 5, 2020 10:25 PM

Last night, we experienced another senseless shooting in Madison. My heart hurts for those who were celebrating the life of their loved one, lost to gun violence less than a week ago, only to have it end with more gun violence. 

It is my hope, that after a fair, and credible investigation, that we will have answers to all our questions, and those affected by this tragedy can continue on their path to healing.

I am grateful for the swift response of first responders and Madison Police, as well as neighbors who made calls to 911 so quickly. Going forward, we will continue conversations about how to improve safety in Madison, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts. Our city has gone through a lot of challenges this year, and it is only by working together that we'll be able to overcome them.

You can see the police incident report, with updates here.
