Nessel Issues Statement on MSU Shooting

LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued the following statement following the active shooter at Michigan State University:

“As a parent, there is no greater fear than having your child tell you there is an active shooter at their school. I experienced this terror along with thousands of other MSU families last night. While my Spartan sons are safe, I am mourning the devastating loss and senseless violence.  The events at Michigan State University are a tragedy for the entire state of Michigan.  My thoughts are with the victims, their families, friends, and loved ones. 

I want to thank everyone in law enforcement who worked to secure the campus and protect the community.  I am hopeful that the investigation reveals how we can better protect our children, our neighbors, and all those who call Michigan home.”
