The mother of shooter John Zawahri had returned from a trip to Lebanon but was keeping her distance from reporters. She released the following statement through a neighbor:

“As may be assumed, I am in mourning for my family and those who were also affected by this horrific tragedy over the past few days. I cannot express my great sadness for the families who are also suffering at this terrible time. I do ask the media to please give me time to grieve and come to grips with the overwhelming sorrow. This has befallen all of us.”
