Governor, AG Issue Statements Regarding Officer’s Murder


Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued the following statement after the murder of a San Antonio Police Officer earlier today:

“Cecilia and I extend our deepest condolences to the victim’s family and harshly condemn this horrific act of violence. We ask that all Texans join us in praying for the officer’s loved ones as they deal with the aftermath of this unimaginable tragedy. Attacks against law enforcement officers will not be tolerated in Texas and must be met with swift justice, which is why I look forward to signing my Police Protection Act into law – making targeted attacks against law enforcement a hate crime. “

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued the following statement regarding the tragic death of a San Antonio Police Officer:

“Texans grieve today, yet again, as a courageous police officer was senselessly murdered in the line of duty in San Antonio. My office will support the San Antonio Police Department however we can now and in the days ahead. Angela and I extend our prayers and deepest sympathy to this officer’s family and to his colleagues in San Antonio and around Texas.”
