Van Hollen Statement on Capital Gazette Shooting

WASHINGTON – Today U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen issued the following statement on the shooting in Annapolis, Maryland:

“The Capital Gazette is a local institution and vital to how our community gets our information. No one should have to fend off bullets in the newsroom while doing their jobs—this is not normal. While we don’t know what motivated this attack, we must do all we can to stand together in times of great tragedy and unite to end the violence. My heart is with the families, friends, and loved ones of the victims at this terrible time.”
