St. Joseph, July 11, 2016 | Tom Wilbur/Lynn Turner (202 225 3761/269-385-0039) | comments

U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, made the following statement on the shooting that occurred this afternoon at the Berrien County Courthouse:

“What occurred today in my hometown breaks my heart. My thoughts are with our entire community – our friends and neighbors. This tragic event reminds us all too well that our law enforcement officers have their lives on the line every day not knowing what that day will bring. We have lost two very able public servants and we all grieve for them and their families. As we learn more about this horrific situation, one thing is clear: we must do better to prevent these types of tragedies from occurring.”
