Florida Governor Rick Scott was asked about the officer-involved shooting of Corey Jones.

Appearing at an event in Miami he told WSVN:

“Look, every loss of life is absolutely tragic. You just can’t imagine it happening to any family. So, in that case, they are going through the investigation and I’ll monitor the investigation. I believe in our law enforcement. They are doing the right things. That’s why we are at a 44 year low on our crime rate."  

A spokesperson for Governor Scott said that the governor spoke with FDLE Commissioner Rick Swearingen, Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw, and 15th Judicial Circuit State Attorney Dave Aronberg today and offered the assistance of FDLE in the two ongoing investigations by the State Attorney’s Office and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office into the death of Jones.
