Last night’s tragic shooting is disturbing to our whole community. My heart goes out to the family of the victim, and to all who witnessed the event, and I urge everyone to access mental health support. Unfortunately this high profile homicide is part of a larger pattern of gun violence across our country. I want to thank the Madison Police Department for their quick and effective action to secure the scene and bring suspects into custody. Departments including MPD and Public Health Madison Dane County are working collaboratively to address violence locally. I want to assure the community that our work to curb violence in our community continues in collaborative teams that include MPD, the County, courts and community groups. The safety of Madison residents is our top priority and we will continue to work to make Madison a place where everyone can thrive.
