Also, Oakland County Executive David Coulter has released a statement in response to the shooting.

Saturday’s horrific shooting of nine people simply enjoying a summer day at a splash pad in Rochester Hills is another appalling display of senseless violence,” said Oakland County Executive Dave Coulter. “The Oakland County community stands with the injured and their families, and unfortunately, just as we had to do in Oxford, we will be with the victims, their families and the community for as long as it takes. I’m grateful for the quick response from the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department and first responders, and for the coordination between our Emergency Operations Center and other responding agencies.

Rochester Hills Mayor Bryan Barnett has made the following statements regarding the Rochester Hills Brooklands Plaza Splash Pad shooting

I can tell you that OCSO and the RHFD have done an exceptional job with a horrific scene. There are no less than 100 deputies and firefighters working tremendously hard at both scenes as we speak.

I’ve received calls from the White House, the Governor, most of our congressional delegation and mayors from across the county. This is a horrible scene that has been repeated too many times across our country… unfortunately touching our city today.
The Brooklands is a proud neighborhood and our city is equally tight knit and strong. We will be ok. I would ask all of our residents to continue praying for the victims, their families and for our community.

The City of Rochester Hills has closed the Brookland Hills Splash Pad until further notice.
