Mayor Buckley: Overnight Shooting at Harbour House
“I am saddened by the overnight shooting that took the life of a young woman from our community. It is absolutely intolerable that people resolve their problems with such violence. City staff are working with the family to help them through this very difficult time.
“The Annapolis Police are focused on solving this crime and they have asked that anyone who has information from the neighborhood come forward to hold the person or persons accountable for their actions.
“There is no circumstance where this can be tolerated. We have worked with our local and federal partners to get guns off the street. People have the right to feel safe in their neighborhoods. This is a small town and these shootings are personal. This woman’s life was cut short at 21. She had her whole life ahead of her. Please come forward to stop this kind of violence.
“Our crisis intervention team is assisting the victim’s family and Annapolis Police Chief Edward Jackson is updating me on the status of this case. We will find the perpetrator and they will be held to account.”
