Statement from Senator Pittman

HARRISBURG – Senator Joe Pittman (R-41) has issued the following statement regarding the early morning shooting at Chevy Chase Community Center in White Township, Indiana County:

“I am saddened, disturbed and frankly, angry such senseless violence has occurred in our community.

“I have been in communication with Governor Shapiro this morning and I am confident the perpetrator(s) will be brought to justice swiftly. The Pennsylvania State Police, local law enforcement and emergency service personnel are to be commended for their swift and brave response.

“Horrific events such as this underscore the need for well-coordinated and effective emergency response services. While much remains unknown about the circumstances of this specific event, it is abundantly clear the scourge of violence in our society must stop. Urban, rural and suburban communities alike, cannot tolerate such incidents of harm to others.”
