“This is another example of senseless violence, which has unfortunately become all too common in our society,” Benson said. “An incident where a family ends the day losing a loved one like this is both tragic and unnecessary. On behalf of the men and women of the Cumberland Police Department, I offer our condolences to the family, friends, and loved ones of Mr. Diggs.”
“We will remain steadfast in our efforts and bring those responsible to justice,” he continued. “My broader hope is that people out there hear of this story, and the countless others like it, and look to approach conflict in a more responsible manner where families don’t continue to have to bury loved ones in this manner.”
The incident is still under investigation.
