Statement from Governor Jan Brewer
“I am horrified and saddened by the senseless shooting that took the lives of so many innocent people in Colorado this morning. There is no rationale for violence this cruel; no explanation for this kind of evil.
“I ask my fellow Arizonans to join me in praying for the victims of this massacre, as well as their families. Tragically, our state knows something about grief this dark and sorrow this deep, but also the light that shines as a community rallies together in faith, love and hope.
“Our hearts are with our Colorado neighbors now dealing with heartbreak difficult to fathom.”
