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.

    "Hell of a morning for jury Duty", "I think they got him (snicker)". What a jerk. Just indicative of the lowest common denominator that's out on the street...

    R.I.P. and God bless. PIP9132 and atlantaPD87, I'm reminded of why I hate going to court-houses; amazing how these "gun-fee zones" are the ones that are easiest for the bad guys to victimize, isn't it?
