I am saddened to be having to make this statement as a shooting situation occurred late last night near the Mandalay Bay Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. No one wants to be woken up to hear about such tragedies in our nation. It is currently unclear the motive for the shooting or how many may have been injured in this senseless attack. What we do know is that this happened in the vicinity of Mandalay Bay and law enforcement has responded.
I ask that we pray for those that may be in harms way or injured. I also ask that we refrain from jumping to conclusions until facts are given by the local authorities. I do know that my thoughts and prayers are with the law enforcement personnel currently looking for the person or persons who did this, and also with the families of those injured.
God be with those affected,
