[ARCHIVED] A Message From The Mayor: Allen Shooting


A Message from Mayor Jeff Bickerstaff

It is with a very heavy heart that I share the news that we lost two young children in the Allen shooting this weekend. The Mendoza family resides in Sachse and the girls attended Cox Elementary School. This is an unspeakable tragedy. Our hearts are completely broken for their family, the victims, and for our community as we know many have been impacted by the events of last weekend. No words can heal the pain that has occurred, but our hearts are with everyone grieving in this immensely difficult time.

Sachse is a community that unites around those who need our support. We are here for the family, their friends, Wylie ISD, and our residents who are reeling from a great loss. We are here for the City of Allen as they respond to a horrific act of violence in their community.

 Love your neighbors, be kind, and take care of each other.

 - Mayor Bickerstaff
