Mayor Buckley Statement on Overnight Shooting on West Street

“There is no circumstance where this can be tolerated. My sympathies go out to the family. 

“We are focused on getting guns off the street but it only takes one criminal with a gun for the results to be tragic. This was a horrific outcome for the kind of everyday gun violence that many cities across America see. Annapolis is sadly not immune.

“We have deployed our crisis intervention team to assist the victim’s family.  Police Chief Jackson is updating me regularly on the status and every resource is being deployed to solve this case. The perpetrator will be found and held to account.”

- Mayor Gavin Buckley, City of Annapolis
