FBI Response to Homicide Investigation

The FBI is aware of the attacks tonight, and we are offering any resource that may assist Portland Police in their investigation. We will certainly be looking at the facts and evidence as the investigation unfolds to determine whether there is any potential federal violation.

At the core of the FBI's mission is the belief that every person has the right to live, work, and worship in this country without fear. Hate and bigotry have no place in our community, and we will not allow violence in the name of hate to go unanswered.
