Mayor: Thoughts for Victims of Tuesday's Incident; Thanks for the Heroes

While we all know that Lake Forest has a very low crime rate, this is a time when statistics don’t mean much. Our thoughts are with our community members, our neighbors, who were injured in the senseless incident that occurred Tuesday night.

We take comfort in knowing the victims are expected to recover, and pride in the Lake Forest residents who acted in time of crisis. They are the everyday heroes who helped the injured and apprehended the attacker. And of course, our thanks to our partners at the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

The Sheriff’s Department will release more information as it is appropriate but rest assured that we will review the events and take any possible steps to ensure the continued safety of our community.  

-- Mayor Mark Tettemer
