Senator Wiener Adjourns California Senate in Memory of Victims of San Francisco Shooting

June 15, 2017

Sacramento –  Today, Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) adjourned the California State Senate in memory of the three victims of yesterday’s shooting at a UPS facility in San Francisco. In speaking of Wayne Chan, 56, of San Francisco, Benson Louie, 50, of San Francisco, and Michael Lefiti, 46, of Hercules, Senator Wiener said:

“People are in absolute shock that these UPS drivers were taken from us in this way. These massacres – we get a little numb to them because they seem to be happening more and more. Whether it is Pulse Nightclub, or South Carolina, or Sandy Hook, or Columbine or San Bernardino, there’s a temptation to get numb and we can’t get numb. These are real people with families and communities that leave a hole in that family and that community. We are reminded once again that no community is immune from this senseless gun violence and we need to do everything in our power to restore peace in our nation.”
