Taylor Swift Sends Flowers to Injured Police Officer in Vegas Shooting
Taylor Swift has always been classy and this gesture is no exception. The singer sent multiple floral bouquets, in the wake of the mass shooting in Las Vegas, to a female police officer who was injured by the gunman’s bullets. The gunman fired into the crowd at the Las Vegas country music festival and claimed the lives of over 50 people while injuring hundreds more.
The police officer, who is currently unnamed, was off duty and enjoying the festival when she was reportedly hit in the knee by a bullet. According to ABC7, she is in stable condition and is expected to make a complete recovery.
The bouquets were received by the Los Angeles Police Department’s Foothill Community Police Station I Pacoima, California.
“Talk about a class act! @taylorswift sent multiple bouquets of flowers and plants to our station, as one of our officers was shot in Las Vegas last night,” an LAPD intel analyst named Kimberlee Binder wrote in an Instagram caption for a photo of the stunning multi-colored flowers. “This is one of the smaller arrangements. Beautiful flowers can bring a smile to anyone’s face. Much respect.”
The LAPD issued a press release on social media shortly after the shooting expressing gratitude for the public’s concern.
“Thank you to all who have called and experienced concerns of our Foothill Female Officer. She is stable and doing well. We wish everyone who remains in Las Vegas and in attendance safe returns,” the LAPD wrote on Facebook Monday.
“Several off-duty LAPD employees traveled to Las Vegas to enjoy the festival and we have confirmed that one officer was struck by gunfire during the shooting. While that officer is expecting to make a full recovery, it is still unclear who else may have been injured trying to get to safety,” the statement said.
Swift quickly expressed her heartfelt condolences and let flowers do the rest of the talking
