Massachusetts State Police Statement on Attack Against Capitol Police
The Massachusetts State Police are monitoring developments in the investigation into today’s deadly assault on Capitol Police Officers in Washington, D.C. While federal authorities continue to develop and share information, we currently are aware of no connection between the suspected assailant and Massachusetts, nor are there any credible or specific threats of violent activity of a similar nature in this state. We routinely maintain a high alert level and multi-layered security operation at government buildings and property under our jurisdiction, and have the capability to adjust that operation if intelligence so dictates. With heavy hearts we offer our condolences to our fellow officers of the Capitol Police and the families of the officers attacked in today’s incident.
