Statement on Jury Verdict Related to June 5, 2014

Statement from Seattle Pacific University.

"While today’s verdict marks the end of the criminal trial related to June 5, 2014, it does not mark the end of the impact this act of violence has had on our campus.

We continue to keep the victims, families, and all those affected by this tragedy in our prayers. We continue to journey with the Lee family on how we can honor Paul, who would have been a senior this year.

We want to express our gratitude to the judge, jury, and justice system for their respect for our community during this time.

We also want to say thank you to our neighbors and friends in Seattle and around the region for their love and support. We are grateful to be a part of such a compassionate community.

Finally, we acknowledge the Lord’s faithfulness to us and to his continuing redemptive work on our campus. Seattle Pacific remains strong and resilient."
