Today, the people of Nevada have been besieged with unimaginable pain caused by the violence that took place in Las Vegas.

At our Senate session today I asked the Senate to stand together and unite and observe a moment of silence for those who lost their lives, those who were wounded, and for all of those who are experiencing the consequences of these devastating and tragic actions.

At 2:45 this afternoon in Memorial Hall in the State House I joined with Governor Baker, Lieutenant Governor Polito, Attorney General Maura T. Healey, Speaker DeLeo, Senate President Stan Rosenberg, and several other colleagues for a somber moment of reflection. What matters most now is to remember that we are all Americans, and to stand in solidarity and support with and for those experiencing terrible pain because of this horrendous violence.
