Thursday, March 28, 2019

OLYMPIA — State lawmakers representing Washington’s 46th Legislative District today released the following statements on the fatal shooting on Lake City Way on March 27:

“My heart is heavy with pain for the families who lost loved ones in this horrible crime,” said Sen. David Frockt (D-Seattle). “Anyone who knows our district and the heavy traffic through this corridor knows this could have happened to any of us. I want to thank the quick-thinking people who helped prevent more lives being lost — especially King County Metro driver Eric Stark and the Seattle Police Department. Our office stands ready to help anyone affected in this incident.”

“It is a tragedy any time someone loses their life to gun violence, but it hits especially hard when it happens in your back yard,” said Rep. Javier Valdez (D-Seattle). “My deepest condolences to the families of those we lost and to everyone involved. I want to especially commend the heroic actions of Metro bus driver Eric Stark, who went above and beyond the call of duty to protect his riders.”

"We are saddened for the families of the victims of the shooting in Sand Point yesterday and are hoping our neighbors can heal,” said Rep. Gerry Pollet (D-Seattle).

The 46th LD includes Lake Forest Park, Kenmore, Lake City, and portions of NE Seattle.
