Re: Shooting of College Students in Texas

"I join the calls from across the nation speaking out against the senseless act of violence in Texas. Two college students, Mollie Olgin and Mary Chapa were shot without provocation at a neighborhood park, this incident should be thoroughly investigated immediately.

As communities come together in vigils nationwide to honor the lives of Mollie and Mary, I hope their friends, family and loved ones know that this shooting will not be ignored. My thoughts and prayers are with Mollie and Mary's loved ones during this difficult time."

There will be a vigil this Sunday, July 1st at 8:30 p.m. in Union Square. More information about the vigil is available here .
