Lafayette, CO — Today Congressman Joe Neguse issued the following statement marking 1-year since the tragic mass shooting at the Table Mesa King Soopers. Later today, he will join the community for a series of Day of Remembrance events in Boulder to reflect upon and honor the lives lost.  

“On a Monday afternoon one year ago today, Coloradans who came to pick up groceries witnessed an unfathomable tragedy. As we mark one year since the terrible mass shooting that devastated our community, we stand together to remember the lives lost and honor those who are healing. Officer Talley. Teri. Kevin. Suzanne. Jody. Denny. Neven. Lynn. Rikki and Tralona. Each of them left a profound impact on our community, as fathers, daughters, spouses, friends, neighbors and coworkers. We will never forget their stories. Their memories will live on in our hearts.”

“Today, our prayers are with all those mourning lost loved ones, lost friends and neighbors, and our thoughts are with the Boulder community as we continue to heal. Our community is a resilient one, and we will continue to come together at such a difficult time.”
