Sonoma County Sheriff Steve Freitas issues the following statement regarding the October 22nd shooting on Moorland Avenue in Santa Rosa.
As a father of two boys about this age, I can't begin to imagine the grief this family is going through. This is a tragedy on many levels…for the terrible loss of Andy Lopez, his family, the family's loved ones, friends, our community, and the members of the Sheriff's Office.
The Sheriff's Office is fully cooperating with the investigation being conducted by the Santa Rosa Police Department, Petaluma Police Department, the Sonoma County District Attorney's Office and we will continue to do so for the duration of the investigation.
The public expects that the investigation will be thorough and transparent. As Sheriff, I will do all in my power to see that expectation is satisfied.
My hope is that we can work with the community to help prevent a similar tragedy from happening in the future.
