THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary (Kampala, Uganda) ________________________________________________________________________ For Immediate Release March 24, 1998
STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT
Like all Americans, Hillary and I are deeply shocked and heartbroken by this afternoon's horrifying events at Westside Middle School in Jonesboro, Arkansas.
We don't know now and we may never fully understand what could have driven two youths to deliberately shoot into a crowd of their classmates.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and the entire Jonesboro community.
