EDITED TO ADD: Please remember this is an ongoing investigation and there may be conflicting reports coming out in the media. We don’t have all the details, but we do know that all of our shelter guests and staff are safe and there is no further cause for concern. Details will come out from the police, as appropriate.
We are saddened and heartbroken by the incident that occurred at Tedford Housing’s family shelter last night. While we don’t have many details, we do know there was a shooting at the family shelter that resulted in a fatality. The two men involved were not guests of the shelter and, unfortunately, both had guns, which are not allowed on Tedford Housing property. We are working with the state police in the ongoing investigation, including giving them access to security camera footage.
Our main focus right now is to offer crisis support to those families and staff who were directly involved in the tragic incident and anyone else who may need the support. We are appreciative of the outpouring of love and support we are receiving from community members and partners.
