Salisbury Mayor Jim Ireton and the city council are mourning the death of 2 people in the city Tuesday night. The mayor says the city is ready to assist Salisbury University and the Onley Road community in any way they can.
“The senseless violence that has claimed 2 lives is horrific and incomprehensible. The families of the dead and wounded are in our citizen's thoughts and prayers. The wasted potential and loss of life will never be fully counted. Salisbury, it citizens and employees of the city stand ready to assist Salisbury University and the Onley Road community in any way we can,” said Mayor Ireton.
“When tragedy strikes, we are afforded the opportunity to see not only darkness in our world, but heroism, courage, love and empathy. Today, we can reflect on the bravery of the police officers and paramedics who selflessly entered into a dangerous situation and the young man who tried to protect his friend; tomorrow we will marvel at the bravery, love and compassion of our community, our city, our University,” said Council President Jake Day.
