WASHINGTON, D.C – Mayor Vincent C. Gray released the following statement today on the verdict in the 2010 South Capitol Street shootings case and his continued commitment to ensuring public safety citywide:

“Every neighborhood in the District should be a safe neighborhood, and I won’t rest until that’s a reality. I want to applaud our law enforcement personnel for the work they did in this case and the work they do every day. I’d also like to thank the community for stepping forward and working with law enforcement. We must redouble our commitment to ensure that this type of senseless tragedy could never happens again.

My administration will continue to stand firmly against violence in our communities. That’s why our approach is to be tough on crime while also addressing the underlying systemic and individual causes. We’ve worked to ensure that our law enforcement and human services agencies work together to share information to help us intervene before violence occurs. Additionally, we are investing in mental health, education, workforce development and substance abuse programs that meet the needs of all of our citizens while strengthening our communities, and thus hopefully preventing crime.”
