CFO Jeff Atwater Statement Regarding Florida State University Shooting


Contact: Chris Cate
(850) 413- 2842
“As a Floridian and as a father of a Florida State University student, I am deeply saddened by the shooting that took place in the early morning hours at Strozier Library. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims and the entire Florida State University community as we try to process and recover from this event.
“While praying for a swift recovery for those who were injured, let us also offer our heartfelt gratitude for the first responders who reacted immediately and without hesitation to ensure the protection of students and faculty during a violent and unpredictable situation. Their bravery saved lives today.
“Let this tragedy strengthen our resolve and let the Tallahassee community and all of Florida stand together in support of those impacted by today’s events.”
