Seattle Mayor Politicizes Seattle Pacific University Shooting: 'Epidemic of Gun Violence'

Just hours after an unidentifed male with a shotgun entered Otto Walker Hall at Seattle Pacific University, killing one and wounding three, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray stepped up to an open microphone and politicized the heinous crime.

Murray said:

Today should have been a day of celebration at the end of the school year here at Seattle Pacific University; instead it’s a day of tragedy and of loss. Once again, the epidemic of gun violence has come to Seattle – the epidemic of gun violence that is haunting this nation.

He then thanked first responders and continued:

We have been here before: Cafe Racer, the shootings on Capitol Hill, the shootings at the Jewish Federation; this is a tragic moment for Seattle and a tragic moment for America once again.
