Texas Gun Sense Mourns Five Dead in Senseless Cleveland, TX Shooting


Last night, five people were murdered in an “execution-style” shooting in their Texas home. The youngest victim was 8 years old. 

The gunman was armed with an AR-15 style weapon. News stories indicate he was intoxicated.

“Just yesterday, we stood on the steps of the Capitol with survivors from Uvalde demanding that lawmakers act. This morning, we’ve learned of another senseless shooting that ended the life of a child and his family members,” said Nicole Golden, Texas Gun Sense Executive Director. People often ask ‘what is it going to take to do something?‘ To that, we say, the unspeakable has already happened, and continues to happen, to our communities. We know that strong gun laws work, we know most Texans support them, and we know there is no excuse for inaction to save lives.”
