RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — U.S. Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine introduced a resolution to honor the entire Virginia Beach community during this tough time. 

“When Virginia Beach mourns, so does the rest of the Commonwealth. It’s for this reason that we recognize the public servants, first responders, and community members that will forever be marked by this tragic event,” Warner said. 

The resolution is designed to honor the 12 victims, public servants, first responders, and those who were affected by the shooting. 

“This resolution honors them and recognizes the heroic actions of those who risked their lives to save others. No community should go through this pain,” Kaine said.
