LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Mark Huizenga, R-Walker, issued the following statement in response to the tragic shooting Monday night at Michigan State University:
“As a parent, your greatest fear is losing one of your children. I am heartbroken for the victims of this senseless act of violence, and my thoughts are with their families and friends during this time of unimaginable grief. We need to work together on effective solutions to end this violence in our communities and especially at our schools.
“My office has two interns, Spencer and Henry, who are current MSU students. I am thankful to announce that they are safe, yet I ask for people to pray for them, the MSU community, and the broader East Lansing community as they immediately face the loss of innocent lives and begin to deal with the long-term mental impact of this traumatic event.”
