Thornberry statement on the Amarillo Walmart shooting
Washington, June 14, 2016 | Nicole Bender (202-225-3706)
"I want to commend the Amarillo Police Department, other law enforcement officers, and first responders for their handling of today’s incident. While further information is sure to come, what we know is that no one other than the suspect was injured. Every day law enforcement officers stand ready to protect the public, even at the risk of their own lives. Especially in recent months, I do not believe they get the thanks they deserve. Today we have all been reminded."
