Court Officer Killed in Courthouse Shooting [Video]

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.

    I was praying that this was going to be a better year for law enforcement. Even though they had said officers deaths were down last year we all know the assaults on LEO's had a sharp spike. I hope this trend doesn't continue this year.

    RIP brother. A speedy recovery to the other officer involved. You both did a great job.
