This evening, Attorney General Sean Reyes released the following statement regarding the school shooting in Parkland, Florida earlier today.
“Our hearts are breaking for the families of the shooting victims at Douglas High School in Florida. I can’t think of a worse nightmare for a parent. Our team has reached out to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi to offer our condolences and support should they need additional therapists and advocates to help surviving students and the families of victims. We know Florida has generously sent personnel in the wake of mass shootings in other states.
“The Utah Attorney General’s Office’s Law Enforcement Division, in partnership with the Utah Department of Public Safety, will continue to train officers from around our state in simulated active shooter situations, praying that we will never see a school shooting like today’s and hoping that we will never have to face the tragedy of another Utah mall attack, newsroom assault, or university gunman.”
