And we should listen to them. Those victims, they know what they’re talking about, and we have to respect that.”
The victims killed in the shooting were 63-year-old Thomas Elliott, 57-year-old Juliana Farmer, 64-year-old Jim Tutt, and 40-year-old Joshua Barrick. Nine other people, including two officers, were injured. The gunman has been identified as 23-year-old Connor Sturgeon; he died during the shooting.
