PITTSBURGH, PA (Nov. 24, 2014) – Mayor William Peduto released the following statement in regard to the grand jury decision in the August shooting in Ferguson, Missouri:

“Ferguson may be hundreds of miles away, but the reverberations from August’s shooting are still felt, understandably, in Pittsburgh and other cities nationwide. I know it is hard right now, but it is my fervent hope that in coming days we can use this decision as an opportunity to come together — in peace and in prayer — to do the necessary work of strengthening ties between residents and police, and finding new paths to mutual trust and understanding.”
