N.M. Delegation Statement on Shootout in Red River

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) and Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) and U.S. Representatives Teresa Leger Fernández (D-N.M.), Melanie Stansbury (D-N.M.), and Gabe Vasquez (D-N.M.) issued the following statement in response to shootings in Red River, N.M.: 

“We are heartsick over the shootings yesterday in Red River, New Mexico. Our thoughts are with those injured and the families of those we have lost. We are immensely grateful for the quick action by law enforcement officers and the heroic work of first responders and health care providers.  “Yesterday’s shootings desecrated a decades-old, cherished community gathering. We are painfully aware that these shootings also came less than two weeks after the mass shooting in Farmington. We cannot let these events become normal.  We must do more to prevent gun violence.”
