On behalf of the Linden community, we would like to express our deepest condolences and sympathy to the Pearson family over the tragic loss of a loved one in connection with the fatal shooting that took place Wednesday, afternoon in Linden.
Last night, my wife and I spent time with the family, bringing to reality the devastation left behind by gun violence.
We know the victim, the alleged accuser, and their families, all of whom are Linden residents. As parents, we are heartbroken and share the pain and sorrow as a result of this tragedy.
Mayor Derek Armstead
