Senator Jean Fuller issues statement regarding shooting at Taft High School

TAFT, Calif. - Senator Jean Fuller (R-Bakersfield) released the following statement regarding news of a shooting this morning at Taft Union High School:

My thoughts and prayers are with the students, faculty, families and first responders at Taft Union High School this morning. At this moment, their safety and well-being is paramount.

Story ->

Let me be absolutely clear. Violence directed at our children and teachers in schools is unacceptable.
Not more than a month ago, the nation turned its attention to the horrific violence that occurred in Newtown. As a local resident and community member, elected official and former educator, I know Taft well. It's a community also made up of proud and hard-working residents who send their children to schools to learn.
Those responsible for the deplorable action today must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
