We don't know a lot about this shooting yet, but I do know this gun violence epidemic must stop. We simply cannot let this become the new normal. Too many lives are being snuffed out far too soon. We lift these families up in prayer as we fight to end this epidemic. https://t.co/kKxmCGb9iP— Andrew Gillum (@AndrewGillum) August 26, 2018
