The President of the Republic of Molossia has issued the following statement:


Office of the President, Republic of Molossia

Today at about 9:00 AM PST a gunman opened fire on innocent bystanders in a shopping center in Carson City, Nevada, just 25 minutes west of our nation. Several people were wounded and four were killed, among them members of the Nevada National Guard, an organization that I had the honor to serve with for 15 years. Among the deceased is one of my very best friends, a young lady I have known and worked with for many years. As Molossia's official baker, she has been a tireless supporter of our nation and one of our greatest fans. And now she is gone, taken from us in an act of senseless violence. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of all of the victims of today's attack, not the least of those to the individuals that suffered a pointless and untimely death at the hands of a madman.

I have ordered the Molossian flag to be flown at half-staff for the next three days in remembrance of our fallen friends. I ask that we should all remember these brave souls and keep them in our hearts, as well to cry out against the mindless violence that took them from us, so far before their time.
