“Today Democratic Nominee for Mayor, Councilmember Muriel Bowser, released a statement regarding the recent shootings that have occurred over the past week in the District of Columbia:

“I have been briefed by Chief Lanier on several shootings that have occurred over the past week in the District. I am saddened for the victims and their families, yet also outraged that the acts of a few individuals now threaten to erode our ability to feel safe in the District.

“Ensuring the public safety of Washingtonians is our top priority. After speaking with Chief Lanier, I know our police department is doing everything possible to keep our residents safe and deter additional shootings. But they can’t do it alone. If residents see something, say something. You can provide an anonymous tip anytime to 202-727-9099 or text to 50411. We are our brothers and sisters’ keepers, so we must work together to ensure a safer District for everyone. And, we must stay vigilant in condemning acts of violence and continuing to act on the values that make the District of Columbia the greatest city in the nation.”
