Rear Admiral Fagan released the following statement Friday:

"In the wake of this tragedy, I invite everyone to join me in offering our thoughts and prayers for the families, friends and loved ones of those impacted. In committing our support to them, our focus turns to remembering the life and service of Petty Officer Lisa Trubnikova and aiding the recovery of Petty Officer Anna Trubnikova.

I want to acknowledge the actions of the Bourne Police Department who responded quickly and courageously as events unfolded yesterday morning. Their response saved the life of Petty Officer Anna Trubnikova and removed the threat to the community. I particularly want to recognize and thank Bourne Police Officer Jared MacDonald, a Coast Guard veteran, who was injured responding to the attack.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to those in the community and the Coast Guard family who stand alongside us as we mourn the tragic loss of Petty Officer Lisa 2nd class Trubnikova, and wish the speedy recovery of Petty Officer 3rd Class Anna Trubnikova and Officer Jared MacDonald." 

Anna Trubnikova is in stable condition, according to the USCG release.
