VP Kamala Harris and the Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff emerged from the motorcade at 7:05 pm and were greeted by local officials in Highland Park.

They walked to the Highland Park crime scene. Harris spoke for a few more minutes with Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rotering and police officers. Press was shuffled back and forth across the street to capture exchanges.

The crime scene in Highland Park appeared largely intact. Children’s bikes, a baby stroller, water coolers, toys and lawn chairs are scattered along the brick sidewalks. 

Local residents stood on the opposite side of the street.

“There’s a lot of healing that’s going to have to happen that is both physical and emotional. There’s no question that this experience is something that is going to linger in terms of the trauma,” said Kamala Harris.

“We’ve got to be smarter as a country in terms of who has access to what – and in particular assault weapons. We have to take this stuff seriously. As seriously as you are because you have been forced to take it seriously. The whole nation should understand and have a level of empathy to understand that this can happen anywhere, in any peace loving community.”

After her remarks concluded, local residents applauded and shouted “thank you for coming.”
