Mayor Dan Pope and Police Chief Greg Stevens issue statements regarding the Dallas Shooting Incident
Lubbock joins the rest of our nation in expressing our thoughts and prayers for the Dallas Police Officers as well as the Dallas Area Rapid Transit Officer who were killed in last night’s senseless sniper attack. Our hearts are with these individuals, their families, friends, the people of Dallas, and law enforcement communities throughout our nation. More information is forthcoming, but it is important to realize that these officers died defending the public’s right to engage in a peaceful protest. As Americans, we mourn these heroes in uniform who lost their lives while protecting us and protecting our freedom.
