Out of concern for all the people affected by this horrible tragedy, I went down to the scene to check on my relatives and to offer any help I could.
I appreciate all of the people who have reached out to check in on my family. We all appreciate your kind words and prayers. At this time, I am asking people to respect the privacy of family and their medical status.
Finally, I want to again send my thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the shooting.”
