Murkowski Statement on Fort Hood Tragedy

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, issued the following statement regarding the mass shooting at Fort Hood:

“My heart goes out to the victims of the horrible mass shooting at Fort Hood as well as their families. Alaska is fortunate to have some of the finest military installations in the world, so we in Alaska can identify and empathize with the Fort Hood community as it tries to deal with this senseless tragedy. To have such an incident occur at a military base on American soil is especially heartbreaking, and I await further details of the investigation so that we can take the necessary steps to try to keep such an event from happening again.”
