Statement of the Attorney General on Shooting in Arizona

Today's tragedy in Arizona was a senseless act of violence that has already resulted in devastating loss, including the death of Chief United States District Court Judge John Roll and four other individuals and the wounding of Representative Gabrielle Giffords and a number of others.  All of those who were killed or injured and their families are in our thoughts and prayers.

As the President said, FBI Director Mueller is traveling to Arizona to help coordinate the investigation.  The FBI is working jointly with local law enforcement to investigate today's events, and I have directed Department prosecutors and law enforcement officials to use every resource necessary to investigate this tragedy.  I want to assure the people of Arizona and every American that we will hold accountable anyone responsible for these heinous acts.
