Sen. Kelly Statement on Texas School Shooting

May 25, 2022

Senate Republican Leader Kevin Kelly (R-Stratford) released the following statement regarding the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas:


“I pray for the victims of the senseless violence in Uvalde and their loved ones. As a parent and grandparent, my heart breaks for the innocent lives lost, the families trapped in this nightmare, and the children, teachers, and first responders processing unimaginable trauma.  I share my gratitude for the heroic police officers and first responders who rushed to the scene to stop the attacker and save lives. For many here in Connecticut, this senseless tragedy revives the pain, trauma, and grief we experienced nearly 10 years ago following the Sandy Hook tragedy. For those who find themselves or their children struggling today, please do not be afraid to seek out help and support.”
