State Rep. Moscoso calls for unity after SPU shooting

Democratic State Rep. Luis Moscoso says that the shooting at Seattle Pacific University Thursday must serve as a catalyst for everyone to come together to find effective measures to eliminate such violence in the state.

"It is critical that we as a society take action to address this issue, especially among our youth and in our schools," Moscoso said Friday.

Moscoso sits on the House Public Safety Committee.

He said that the event struck him personally.

“The young man who committed this terrible act is from my hometown of Mountlake Terrace," he said. “I have worked on youth violence issues as both a legislator and a citizen, but yesterday is still a heartbreaking reminder that no community is immune to the far-reaching impacts of gun violence in our country."

Moscoso represents the 1st Legislative District, including most of Mountlake Terrace, all of Brier and Bothell, unincorporated areas of Snohomish County north and east of Bothell, north Kirkland and unincorporated areas of King County between Bothell and Kirkland.
