Statement by Director John F. Clark, U.S. Marshals Service, on the shootings this morning at the Lloyd D. George Federal Courthouse in Las Vegas

WASHINGTON – I can receive no news more grim or sobering than word of a line-of-duty death or injury to our U.S. Marshals personnel, as was the case this morning at the Lloyd D. George Federal Courthouse in Las Vegas. Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of the court security officer who was killed, and the deputy marshal who was injured in this morning’s shooting. Words cannot express our concern and sorrow for all those impacted by this tragedy. Rest assured, the brave and immediate actions of these two individuals saved lives by stopping the threat of a reckless and callous gunman who had no regard for who or how many victims were struck down by his senseless actions. They are heroes.

    Wow... Anyone keeping count? This is out of control. As creekcop said, do not let your guard down. I pray that God is with these officers and their families.

    Dear Fellow Brothers in Blue,
    Do not let your guard down. Do not become complacent and always expect the unexpected!
