SOT, Mike Pence, Vice President of the United States: "Allow me to take a moment, to address a matter that I know it’s on the hearts and minds all across California and all across the nation. The shooting that took place at Saugus high school in Santa Clarita earlier today. Five people were injured and tragically, a 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy have lost their lives. This was another heartbreaking day for students and parents in America. In this nation, we mourn with those who mourn and we grieve with those who grieve and to the families of those who lost loved ones and to those who are critically injured. On behalf of the American people, I say from my heart. The hearts of every American are with you today. Our prayers are with you and our prayers are with all the doctors, nurses and hospital staff that are treating your loved ones at this very hour. I spoke to President Trump not long ago, and he asked me to convey his deepest sympathies to the families of the victims and the entire Santa Clarita community."
