LAS VEGAS – The Nevada chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, part of Everytown for Gun Safety, released the following statement following a fatal shooting at Canyon Springs High School in North Las Vegas. While details are still unfolding, reports indicate that one person was shot and killed near the baseball field on school grounds.
STATEMENT FROM ELIZABETH BECKER, VOLUNTEER WITH THE NEVADA CHAPTER OF MOMS DEMAND ACTION FOR GUN SENSE IN AMERICA:
“This afternoon, I saw news of the shooting at Canyon Springs High School and panicked when I realized a close friend was teaching there. My heart aches for the young victim and his family. We don’t deserve to live like this, and our children don’t deserve to die like this. This is not normal and I will not stop working to keep my community safe from gun violence.”
STATEMENT FROM MICHELLE TRAJTMAN, STUDENT LEADER WITH THE PALO VERDE CHAPTER OF STUDENTS DEMAND ACTION FOR GUN SENSE IN AMERICA:
“It’s heartbreaking to see this kind of violence at a school in my community. Just since school started this year, four students in Clark County have been found with loaded guns on school grounds. Now this time, a gun at school took the life of a member of our community. My heart goes out to the victim’s friends and families and the entire Canyon Springs community.”
