Delaware Congressional Delegation Statement on Situation at James Vaughn Correctional Center

 


WILMINGTON, Del. – Today, U.S. Senators Tom Carper and Chris Coons, along with Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester (all D-Del.), released the following statement about the hostage situation at James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna.

“Our hearts are broken for the family and friends of the officer that was killed at the Vaughn Correctional Center earlier this morning. We will keep Steven Floyd in our prayers, and reach out to his loved ones to offer our support. Today is a day of mourning for all of Delaware.

“Our thoughts are with the correctional officers who were harmed, and we hope they have a full and speedy recovery. We are particularly thankful for their service and for the law enforcement officials who worked throughout the night to resolve this situation. We stand ready to work with Governor Carney and local and federal law enforcement to prevent a situation like this from happening in Delaware or elsewhere in our country.”
