Fitzgerald Statement on Tragic, East Pittsburgh Shooting

PITTSBURGH – Please find following a statement from County Executive Fitzgerald on Tuesday night’s tragic, East Pittsburgh shooting:

“First off, I extend my sympathy to the family, friends, classmates, and neighbors of Antwon Rose. Our entire community is struggling with overwhelming anger and sorrow right now, and we all have questions.

“What you see on this video is disturbing. Antwon’s family – and this entire community – deserve answers to their questions. There must be a thorough, swift and transparent review and investigation of his death. The county will provide any resources that we can to ensure justice and a fair investigation.

“Regardless of the outcome, we as a community need to find a way to come together. It won’t be easy to re-establish trust and reunite our community, but we are strongest when we work together and as a community, we can heal together too.”
