Senator Randolph Bracy's statement regarding this morning's killing of an Orlando PD officer

Tallahassee —

Notified this morning of the death of an Orlando police officer killed in the line of duty, and the ensuing manhunt for the alleged killer, state Senator Randolph Bracy (D-Orlando) issued the following statement: 

"I condemn this violence and I will work hard as the Senate Criminal Justice Committee Chairman to reform our laws, to make it harder for criminals to have access to high powered and illegal weapons in our communities. The alleged shooter in this case is linked to another murder in the area of Pine Hills at the end of last year, underlining the need for urgent changes to stop more bloodshed.

"My thoughts and prayers are with the family and colleagues of the slain Orlando Police Department officer involved in this tragic event."
