Statement on Jacksonville Shooting

In response to information that the alleged shooter in the August 26, 2018 Jacksonville, FL, shooting was a University of Maryland student, University of Maryland President Wallace D. Loh released the following statement: 

“Our community grieves for the families of those who lost their lives in yesterday’s horrific shooting in Jacksonville. When our community was directly impacted by the shooting in Annapolis this summer, I said that more than silent reflection is needed to end the epidemic of gun violence in our country, and I will say that again today. The alleged shooter was previously enrolled here and was not registered for classes this semester. I encourage anyone at our university with relevant information to reach out to law enforcement to aid in the investigation happening in Florida.”
