Interim President Karen Baynes-Dunning issued the following statement on Tuesday’s shooting at a kosher market in Jersey City, New Jersey:

"Instances such as Tuesday’s attacks in Jersey City that left two suspects and four victims dead, including one police officer, have become tragically too common. The ever-increasing number of public acts of violence are designed to strike terror into the hearts of nearly every American.

In these moments, it’s important to remember the victims. Let us remember the lives lost — adding more names to the growing list of those taken by violence and hate. Our hearts go out to the families of the victims and everyone impacted by this horrific event.

In the wake of yet another public act of violence, we can only hope that the current administration begins to take these threats seriously and devote the necessary resources to begin addressing domestic terrorism and hate in our country."
