Tragic events at Hornsby Mall

Paul's Blog Friday, 10 June 2016

Yesterday's tragic events at Hornsby Mall are shocking and saddening.

It is particularly sad that innocent bystanders were injured.

Hornsby is a wonderful and peaceful community - making yesterday's events even more shocking.

Like all in our community, I wish the injured bystanders a speedy recovery both physically and mentally.

I express my sympathy to them - and to all who were caught up in this distressing event.

I also pay tribute to the courage of police officers on the scene, responding to the danger posed by a mentally disturbed man armed with a large knife.  Their quick actions yesterday, in fast moving, high pressure situation, may have prevented a larger tragedy.
