“We did not expect something like this to happen in our community,”  Mayor Gavin Buckley. “We were ready and I don’t think we could have put any more resources if you look behind you of what’s been done here was a tremendous response.”

The Governor of Maryland praised first-responders and the very quick thinking of local law enforcement.
