Congresswoman Kay Granger issued the following statement on the shooting of police officers in Dallas yesterday.

"It is with shock and deep sorrow that I join all Americans in praying for the families and friends of the slain and injured officers of the Dallas Police Department and DART Police. Like so often happens, our men and women in blue ran toward gunfire to protect their fellow citizens. I want to thank them and all law enforcement officers across the country, for their bravery and sacrifice in continuously risking their lives to confront danger and save lives. We will learn more about the details of this horrific ambush in the coming days. In the meantime, let us pause for reflection and healing - recognizing violence is never the answer, and the common humanity that unites us all."
