Gov. Ralph DLG Torres issued the following statement tonight in the wake of the mass shooting in Las Vegas:
Our hearts are with the people of Las Vegas. This is a terrible tragedy that affects all of us.
I’m very relieved to hear that all of our staff of our Casino Commission, who are there for training, are safe.
I know that many of us here in the CNMI have family members and loved ones in the area. Please check in with them to see if they’re safe.
I will be calling Gov. Sandoval tomorrow to see if we can assist in anyway.
Tonight, please pray for Las Vegas and our country.
Our condolences are with the families of the victims.
