3 Sterling residents are dead. At the Public Hearing of the Board of Supervisors in Leesburg, I asked for prayers for the deceased.

Very early this morning I visited the crime scene and expressed support to the many deputies and Sheriff Steve Simpson who had been up all night at the crime scene.

The entire Safeway parking lot was roped off and stores were closed at the shopping center.
