Statement from Councilwoman Kate Gallego on Christmas Day Shooting Statement from Councilwoman Kate Gallego on Christmas Day Shooting <div class="ExternalClassD14DBAB62E124B84AFA4FD1D03ADCD5C"><p>​"I was heartbroken upon hearing the news of last night's tragic shooting involving a mother and her two children. I know I speak for the residents of District 8 in offering my deepest condolences to the family of the victims in this heart-breaking event and in offering our thanks to the first responders who spent Christmas away from their families, dealing with this tragedy. As a mother myself, I am devastated by this horrible situation.<br></p><p>This loss of life has once again served as a reminder that domestic violence is one of the most widespread and dangerous challenges facing our community today. We must come together to increase state and local supports devoted to victims of domestic violence. Domestic violence is preventable and has no place in our neighborhoods."<br></p><p><br></p></div>12/26/2017 10:00:00 PMNick Valenzuela602-495-5405
