U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement on today’s shooting in Kalamazoo.

“Today’s shooting reminds us of the incredible danger facing our law enforcement officials. I join our entire community in praying for a full recovery for the Kalamazoo officer who was shot, and our hearts are with their loved ones and all those who are impacted.

I have been in contact with Kalamazoo Public Safety Chief Karianne Thomas and commended her team and all the first responders for their swift action at the scene. We are so grateful for the brave men and women who work to protect our families and our communities. Every minute of every day these officers put their lives on the line. When you see a law enforcement official, be sure to thank them for their service. I share Chief Thomas’ thoughts that we are grateful everyone is going home safely.”
