Mayor Murray statement on ID homicide

SEATTLE (June 7, 2014) –  Seattle Mayor Ed Murray issued the following statement today after last night's homicide in Seattle's International District:

"For the third time in a week, Seattle has suffered a devastating loss of life as result of guns.

"Once again, it is members of our East African community who feel the pain of this violence most directly. And once again, we as a city together mourn the loss of one of our young men taken too soon.

"Our condolences are with the victim's loved ones today.

"The police department has our full support as it conducts its investigation to understand what transpired -- and how and why -- and bring the perpetrator or perpetrators to justice."
