TSAWWASSEN, BC, Feb. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Our community is grieving today.  Late this past Friday evening, we lost one of our young Members through tragic circumstances that we are trying to understand and deal with.  The family and our community are devastated.

For all of us at Tsawwassen First Nation, it is a time of pulling together to support each other and be the strong community we are.  Our hearts are with the victims' families and friends, and we are here for them.

We thank the Delta Police, the media and the public for allowing us this personal time and giving the situation the respect it deserves.  We thank our many friends for their kind words in this trying time.  And we appreciate people stepping up to help us deal with this tragic situation.

We also send our prayers to the surviving victim and her family.
