STATEWIDE (WTWO/WAWV) — Indiana lawmakers are responding to the deadly shooting at a Texas Elementary School on Tuesday that killed 19 children and two adults.

The 18-year-old shooter is also dead.

Indiana Senator Todd Young tweeted, “I am deeply saddened by the horrific shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. Our nation mourns the innocent lives taken in this senseless tragedy.”

Congressman Larry Bucshon of Indiana’s 8th District tweeted, “This is a senseless act of violence and it is my hope that we will determine why this individual committed such a horrific crime.”

Former State Superintendent Jennifer McCormick tweets, “Kids and their teachers are murdered: no legislative preventative action. kids want to play sports: GOP legislators call a special session and take swift action against transgender children.

Let that sink in.”
