ECMC Corporation Statement
BUFFALO, NEW YORK— “We mourn the senseless and tragic murders today of innocent souls and the wounding of at least three others. This despicable and cowardly action reminds us that we must continue our fight against hate and racism in our country. We pray for the families of the victims and the recovery of those injured.”
