Gov. Malloy and Lt. Gov. Wyman Statements Regarding Mass Shooting in Maryland

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman released the following statements regarding the mass shooting that occurred today at the offices of the Capitol Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland:

Governor Malloy said, “A free press is one of the cornerstones of our democracy. They dedicate their lives to informing and empowering our citizenry. We mourn for the victims lost in today’s senseless mass shooting and grieve with the loved ones they left behind. We struggle to understand the inertia of Congress and President Trump when these shootings seem to happen at an ever increasing frequency. And we stand in solidarity with every journalist who fights day in and day out for the truth and for accountability of those in power.”

Lt. Governor Wyman said, “My thoughts are with the family and friends of those who were killed, and with all the victims of today’s shooting. I want to thank the first responders who acted so quickly to save lives in a situation that is both terrifying and becoming all too common – this is another horrific act of gun violence that has traumatized yet another community and taken more lives from us. I stand with millions of Americans in asking what it will take for our elected leaders to stand up for public safety.”
