Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bobby Scott (VA-03) issued the following statement on the shooting at Heritage High School in Newport News:

“My thoughts are with all the victims, their loved ones, and the entire community at Heritage High School. And I want to commend the Newport News Police Department for their response. While the news crews will eventually leave the scene, many of the students and faculty will carry this event with them for the rest of their lives.  

“It is a cruel irony that schools have only just returned to the classroom for full-time instruction since the start of the pandemic and we are already grappling with another act of senseless of gun violence. We have an obligation to do everything possible to end the horrific pervasiveness of gun violence in schools and in our communities.”
