Austin- Rep. Helen Giddings released the following statement on the stabbing at the University of Texas at Austin:

"Our hearts are broken for the horrific loss of UT student Harrison Brown on Tuesday. Universities are supposed to be a safe haven. They are supposed to be a sanctuary of spreading ideas and growing into adulthood. For several tragic hours, that was stripped away. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Harrison's family and friends. I hope we as Texans can work together to heal from this terrible chapter."
