SACRAMENTO, CA – Representative Ami Bera, M.D. (CA-07) released the following statement on the deadly mass shooting in downtown Sacramento.
“Yet again, the Sacramento community is mourning the victims of another horrific mass shooting. Janine and I send our deepest condolences to all the victims, their families, and our brave first responders and law enforcement who are working diligently to find the shooters.
While the investigation to this shooting is still ongoing and there’s much more information to come to light, one thing is clear – it is past time that we take strong actions to combat the growing wave of violence facing Sacramento.
As our communities and businesses continue to reopen from the COVID-19 pandemic and more people begin to frequent Sacramento, we must have a downtown that is safe and welcoming to all – not one that is filled with senseless crime and violence. It’s incumbent on city officials to fully invest in our public safety programs and equip our law enforcement with all the necessary resources to do keep our communities safe and healthy.
We cannot accept as normal the epidemic of crime and violence that is wreaking havoc on Sacramento.”
