AG Nessel Issues Statement on Oxford High School Shooting

LANSING - Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel released the following statement in response to a deadly shooting this afternoon at Oxford High School:   

"My heart goes out to the parents who have lost their children and to the students, teachers, staff, and families reeling from the tragedy of a school shooting within their community.  My department has reached out to local law enforcement to offer assistance as this investigation unfolds and I want to extend my sincere gratitude to first responders on the scene.      

"We must act to properly address gun violence in our schools and the ongoing threat of another unconscionable tragedy if we continue to only offer thoughts and prayers. Our kids deserve better."
