Ruppersberger Issues Statement on Aberdeen Shooting
(Timonium, MD) — U.S. Representative C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger issued the following statement regarding a shooting at Harford County’s Enterprise Business Park in the Second District:
“I am proud to represent Aberdeen in Congress – it is a close-knit community of patriotic families. Once again, a mass shooting hits too close to home.
I want to acknowledge the professionalism of the Harford County Sheriff’s office: they were on the scene within five minutes and resolved the situation without firing a shot. They were supported by other federal, state and local law enforcement in the type of coordination we hope we never have to see. I also want to thank the emergency medical workers for their response.
We don’t know all of the facts and must now let investigators do their jobs. But one thing I know for sure: people who go to work every day should be guaranteed the right to return home to their families. These shootings should never become routine. I want to express not just my condolences but my commitment to finding a solution to our country’s gun epidemic to today’s victims and their loved ones.”
