MANHATTAN, KAN. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) of Manhattan released the following statement regarding the tragic violence in Johnson County, Kan.:

“I am shocked and sickened by the violence that occurred in Overland Park and Leawood. Kansas is a place where every person of every kind should be safe from violence or persecution. My deepest regrets are with the victims’ loved ones and my thoughts are with the entire community, which has had its sense of comfort and safety threatened by today’s events. I join all Kansans in proclaiming that these horrific acts of violence have absolutely no place in our communities, our state or our country.”

Three people were killed outside of Jewish sites in Overland Park.
