MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Governor Robert Bentley issued a statement on the Orlando mass shooting today:

“The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency has been briefed by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security regarding the tragedy in Orlando. The act of terror appears at this hour to be an isolated incident with no known immediate threats. However, Alabamians should be on alert, especially when attending large mass gatherings throughout the state. As always, if you see something, say something. Report anything suspicious to the Alabama Fusion Center. ALEA Secretary Stan Stabler is receiving regular briefings as the situation unfolds.

The taking of innocent lives is always a hate crime, and any act of terror is a threat to everyone’s security. Alabamians are strong.”
