The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum issued the following statement on today’s shootings:
“Officer Stephen Tyrone Johns died heroically in the line of duty today. There are no words to express our grief and shock over these events. He served on the Museum’s security staff for six years. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Johns’ family.
We have made the decision to close the Museum tomorrow in honor of Officer Johns, and our flags will be flown at half mast in his memory.”
May God Comfort the family and all of the mourners of Stephen Tyrone Johns and may he rest in peace.
