State Rep. Kristin Boggs (D-Columbus), whose legislative district encompasses the Ohio State University campus, today released the following statement in response to this morning’s violent attack that harmed nine individuals:

“I am shocked and saddened by today’s terrifying act of violence at the Ohio State University.

“A student’s experience at college should encompass learning and debating new ideas, and developing lifelong friendships and memories – not senseless, violent tragedy.

“My heartfelt gratitude goes out to the dedicated law enforcement and first responders, whose quick response time and heroic efforts helped minimize the violence and save lives.”

“My thoughts and prayers remain with the students, professors, staff and the entire OSU family shaken by today’s events.”
