News Release from Mormon Newsroom

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released this statement on the Florida school shooting:

“Once again we find ourselves as a nation and as communities faced with a tragic loss of life and incomprehensible sorrow following the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. Among the many injured or killed were two members of our faith. To all of the victims and their loved ones, we extend our love. These are hours filled with grief, emptiness and a terrible sense of loss. We unite our prayers with millions of others who are mourning and praying for them.”

On Wednesday, a 19-year-old man opened fire on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Flordia, with an AR-15-style rifle. At least seventeen were killed with at least 14 others sustaining injuries. Multiple are considered life-threatening.

The shooter was apprehended and is charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.
