[ARCHIVED] MAYOR’S MESSAGE TO VIRGINIA BEACH

MAYOR’S MESSAGE TO VIRGINIA BEACH

 

SUFFOLK, VA (May 31, 2019)   


“Our hearts are broken and our thoughts and prayers are extended to city leaders, employees and citizens of Virginia Beach following this afternoon’s tragic events.


The senseless murder of 11 innocent individuals and the wounding of 6 others at the Municipal Complex is totally incomprehensible. The heroism of the first responders who ran into the building in the midst of gunfire is to be commended, as they undoubtedly saved countless lives by their actions.


Our deepest condolences are extended to all. The City of Suffolk stands ready to provide any assistance needed, and we pray for God’s blessings in this most sorrowful time. “


Mayor Linda T. Johnson
