The Following Statement Was Issued by Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright:

“Our deeply saddened hearts and profound prayers are with the families, friends, and fellow officers of Jason Rivera and Wilbert Mora. Officer Rivera was murdered yesterday while responding to a domestic situation. Officer Mora is in critical condition, after being shot during the same horrific incident. No words are sufficient to express the pain and suffering caused by this tragedy. We must in the days ahead simultaneously address both the continuing influx of out-of-state and illegally obtained guns and greater mental health services for families suffering from domestic distress. Today the entire City is grieving. If you have any information about the incident or leads on the weapon used, please call Crimestoppers at 800-577-TIPS.”
