“The University of Maryland community awoke this morning to heartbreak. We are all shocked and saddened by this morning’s tragic events. We extend our deepest sympathies and prayers to the families and friends of the victims.
I have asked that all appropriate University resources, including our own University Police Department, assist the Prince George’s Police Department in this matter.
During times of loss, community and support are essential components for understanding and healing. I ask that the entire University of Maryland family come together during this time of grief. On campus, our places of worship and the Counseling Center are open for those who need support and comfort. Ours is a university of great resolve. Together, we will emerge from our collective sadness.”
