FBI Special Agent Cannon Releases Statment on Max Train Stabbing
Sunday, May 28, 2017
Read the Statement Below
Good afternoon. My name is Loren Cannon, and I am the Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in Oregon.
The loss of life from this event is a tragedy. In response, we are all doing what we can to bring some measure of justice to those who have suffered.
The FBI shares a long and deep partnership with the Portland Police Bureau. This relationship gives us the foundation on which we work together and share information to best protect our community. It's too early to say whether last night's violence was an act of domestic terrorism or a federal hate crime. However, in the coming days, the FBI, PPB and the prosecutors will work together to share information, leverage resources and make determinations about future criminal charges. PPB is the lead investigative agency and we are honored to support their investigation in any way we can.
To those community members affected by this violence - in particular, the families of the Good Samaritans heroes and our neighbors in the Muslim and African-American communities - we stand with you. We won't allow these acts to go unanswered.
