(Newcastle, Washington) – It was with deep regret and sadness that the City of Newcastle learned of the fatal shooting of Hazrat Ali Rohani on June 5, 2024. The outcome of this incident has undoubtedly caused unimaginable loss, harm, and distress to those involved, as well as the larger community.

We extend our heartfelt sympathies to all those affected. The City of Newcastle is dedicated to the core principles of public safety and community well-being.

The City understands that Aaron Brown Myers has been charged in this case. Mr. Myers had been a member of a recently established ad-hoc citizen Public Safety Committee for the City of Newcastle. Mayor Clark has removed Mr. Myers from the Committee, and he will no longer participate in its activities.

As we navigate through this difficult time, we urge all members of our community to prioritize compassion, unity, and healing.
