“I’m at a loss of words, and I don’t want to hear ‘thoughts and prayers’,” Michigan Sen. Mallory McMorrow, D-Royal Oak, posted to Twitter. “I want everyone in any position of authority to agree that easy access to firearms that allow children to kill other children is not an acceptable world to live in and that we will do everything to stop it.”
It’s estimated up to 20 shots were fired before police arrested the suspected shooter, a 15-year-old sophomore, about 12:55 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 30.
“The news of today’s school shooting at Oxford High School is simply horrifying,” said Sen. Rosemary Bayer, D-Beverly Hills, whose district includes the high school. “On top of an already difficult situation with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our students now have to face this traumatic situation in a place that is supposed to be a safe space for learning and growth.
“My heart goes out to all those involved. I am working with local authorities to understand all the information and provide as much assistance as my office can. I encourage anyone with information about this situation to share it with the police, and I thank our local responders for their swift assistance and response during this difficult time.”
