''We understand that the alleged shooter is in custody and is expected to be prosecuted for the crime.
US Federal authorities are also investigating the case. We have full faith that US legal authorities will bring the case to justice,'' Ms Carlson said. ''We are deeply saddened by this tragic and senseless act. Our deepest sympathies are with the victims and their families,'' she said. (UNI)
