Former U.S. Senator Donnelly, INDems Statements on Mass Shooting at FedEx Facility in Indianapolis


INDIANAPOLIS – Former U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly and the Indiana Democratic Party, the organization that advocates for the future of Indiana and its families, today issued the following statements in reaction to the mass shooting that occurred at the FedEx facility in Indianapolis early this morning on April 16, 2021:

“I am heartbroken over the terrible killings and the tragedy that happened at the Indianapolis FedEx facility. The Hoosiers we lost today were our friends and neighbors who simply showed up to do their work and provide for their families. Now, their loved ones and family members will see empty chairs at dinner tables or empty pews at churches because of these senseless killings. This is an immeasurable loss to the City of Indianapolis, for the state of Indiana, and for all Hoosiers. We will also continue to pray for the full recovery of those who were wounded during this terrible attack. I want to thank our first responders and law enforcement officers for their protection and services and ask that we remember the victims of this shooting and keep their family members close in our thoughts during this difficult time.” – Joe Donnelly, former United States Senator

“The Indiana Democratic Party is heartbroken over the mass shooting that abruptly altered the lives and families of so many in the Indianapolis community today. An epidemic that is sadly unique to our country has reached our state once again. We must ask ourselves: when will these senseless acts of violence end? How many more mass shootings will Indiana have to experience before lawmakers find some courage to pass common sense laws? We pray for the Hoosiers we lost early this morning and for their loved ones. We must commit to coming and working together to ensure that incidents like this one never happen again in Indiana.” – Lauren Ganapini, Executive Director for the Indiana Democratic Party

Let’s elect more Hoosier Democrats
We can't sit this one out.
