Tragic events at Hornsby Mall
Yesterday's tragic events at Hornsby Mall are shocking and saddening.
It is particularly sad that innocent bystanders were injured.
Hornsby is a wonderful and peaceful community - making yesterday's events even more shocking.
Like all in our community, I wish the injured bystanders a speedy recovery both physically and mentally.
I express my sympathy to them - and to all who were caught up in this distressing event.
I also pay tribute to the courage of police officers on the scene, responding to the danger posed by a mentally disturbed man armed with a large knife. Their quick actions yesterday, in fast moving, high pressure situation, may have prevented a larger tragedy.
