Hahn Releases Statement on Gun Violence in Wilmington
Wilmington, California — Tonight, Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn has released the following statement after two shootings, one which took the life of an eleven-year-old boy, in the community of Wilmington.
“I am horrified by the gun violence that hit the Wilmington community this evening. Two shootings in Wilmington, one at Wilmington Park Elementary and the other at Eubank and Anaheim, left an eleven-year-old boy dead and a nine-year-old girl and 25-year-old woman seriously wounded. We are still awaiting more information from the LAPD about whether these shootings were related and whether they have been able to apprehend the gunmen.
This is such a tragedy. Gun violence has destroyed too many lives in this country and tonight it has terrorized another community. I am praying for the family of this little boy and for the recovery of the little girl and young woman.”
