Statement about Brockton shootings

This week has already been deeply traumatic for the city of Brockton, with two fatal shootings in as many days. On Easter Sunday, 27 year old Sedrick Abreu was shot and killed in his home. Early Tuesday morning, in what police believe to be a domestic violence murder-suicide, a man shot a woman and then turned the gun on himself. Our thoughts are with the victims’ loved ones and the entire community of Brockton as they grieve these horrific losses and cope with the lasting trauma.

If you or someone you love is suffering from domestic violence, call the toll-free Safelink hotline at 800-799-7233, or visit our member organization Jane Doe Inc's website for Massachusetts-based resources:
