On Thursday afternoon, Mayor Kathryn McGarry and Councillor Mike Mann released the following statement:
"Like many of you, we were horrified to hear the news yesterday about the fatal shooting in Preston.
We are stunned and saddened to think that this could happen in our city, and our thoughts and prayers are with the victim's family. We have spoken with representatives from Waterloo Region Police, who are still in the process of their investigation.
Citizens in Cambridge have a right to feel safe and secure, and we will be meeting with Chief Larkin to ensure we are doing everything we possibly can to protect our neighbourhoods. We will also be meeting with residents in Preston who, I know, share our deep concern.
This violent incident is not reflective of our beautiful and vibrant City and the people who live here.
Together we will work to ensure the safety of our community."
Investigation continues into a fatal shooting that occurred in Cambridge on Apr 17. A canvass of the area will commence at 2 pm. A command post will be set up near Westminster Dr, between Duke St. & King St. E.
