Mayor Lee on Las Vegas Mass Shooting

“The unprecedented tragedy that took place in Las Vegas is shocking and heartbreaking. An evening intended to be filled with love and music transformed into a terrible nightmare due to an act of domestic terrorism.

We are sending our deepest condolences and sympathies to the hundreds of families affected by this senseless act of gun violence. We also offer our profound appreciation to all the public safety officials who risked their lives responding to this tragic incident.

As San Francisco prepares for many civic events this week, we will be increasing our local law enforcement resources and working with our State and Federal partners to ensure a safe and secure environment for our residents, visitors and employees. There are no known threats to San Francisco at this time, we remind everyone that if they “See Something, Say Something.”

During times like these, we solemnly remember the victims, but we must also ask ourselves why these horrific events continue to transpire. Our nations needs stricter, commonsense gun laws. We cannot continue to play politics with American lives.”


As a mark of respect for the victims of the violence in Las Vegas, the City and County of San Francisco will observe the President’s request that flags on all buildings and grounds be flown at half-staff until sunset, October 6, 2017.
