WASHINGTON, D.C., DC — Congresswoman Elaine Luria (VA-02) introduced a resolution honoring the 12 Virginia Beach mass shooting victims, heroic first responders, brave city officials, and the resilient broader community.

All 11 members of Virginia’s U.S. House delegation are original cosponsors on the resolution.

“In order to understand Virginia Beach’s grief, America must know the 12 names, their stories, and their unforgettable impact,” Congresswoman Luria said. “I have introduced this resolution so Congress can properly remember the victims and honor the heroism that emerged from this tragedy. I thank Virginia’s Congressional Delegation for showing strong support for our community. Swift passage of this resolution will make clear that the Commonwealth and nation grieve with Virginia Beach.”

“This has been a terrible week for Virginians, and all of our hearts are broken for the victims and their loved ones,” Congressman Bobby Scott said. “However, though all of the Commonwealth mourns after yet another tragic mass shooting, we are all united in our support for the Virginia Beach community. I thank Congresswoman Luria for her leadership in introducing this resolution.”
