Below is Cook County Commissioner Sean Morrison's full statement on today's tragic shooting in El Paso, Texas.
The shooting that occurred today in El Paso, Texas is another horrific act of violence. This senseless act claimed the lives of at least 20 individuals - individuals who should still be with us today - and at least two dozen more were injured.
Tonight I am praying for the victims and their families, the community and also for the first responders who witnessed this tragedy. I hope you will too.
As a nation, we must do more to identify and support increased attention to mental illness, as well as additional funding for mental health.
Cook County Commissioner - 17th District
