Here's Pence's full statement: “I was deeply saddened to learn of the tragic loss of life suffered last night during the shooting at Martin's Supermarket in Elkhart. I commend the Elkhart Police Department for courageously intervening and bringing the incident to a swift conclusion. The First Lady and I extend our condolences to the families of the victims and offer our prayers to the entire community during this difficult time.”
