“We are heartbroken by the tragedy that occurred this evening on the 200 block of Simpson Street. An innocent [7]-year-old was struck by gunfire and is in grave condition.

“Criminal acts such as this have no place in our communities, and we are committed to securing justice and promoting healing for all who are affected. While every act of gun violence is lamentable, it is especially tragic when the victim is among our most vulnerable; and it is our collective responsibility — police, and community — to ensure that our children are safe and well-protected. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the precious child and his family.”
