Bustos Statement on Killing of Rockford Sheriff’s Deputy

WASHINGTON – Today, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17) released the following statement after a sheriff’s deputy was killed by a gunman in Rockford:

“My heart aches for the McHenry County Sheriff’s deputy who was shot and killed this morning – and I join the community of Rockford and all Americans to pray for him and his family. As the wife of a sheriff, I know today is the nightmare any family of a law enforcement officer fears and the phone call one prays they never have to pick up. Our brave law enforcement officers put their lives on the line for our communities, and I want to thank the first responders who were at the scene today.”
