The granddaughter of Amarjeet Johal sent NewsNation affiliate WXIN-TV the following statement:

I have several family members who work at the particular facility and are traumatized. My nani, my family, and our families should not feel unsafe at work, at their place of worship, or anywhere. Enough is enough–our community has been through enough trauma.
