NBC’s “This Is Us” cast and crew are among the many reflecting on last weekend’s mass shooting in Pittsburgh, which is also where the show is set.
Eleven people were killed and four police officers injured when a gunman armed with an assault rifle opened fire on the city’s Tree of Life Synagogue congregation during a special service Saturday, Oct. 27.
The show paid tribute to the tragedy during the end credits of last night’s episode, “Kamsahamnida.”
“Our hearts are broken,” the end card read. “We stand with our television hometown of Pittsburgh.”
The statement also told viewers they could “learn more about ending gun violence” by visiting everytown.org.
Everytown for Gun Safety is a non-profit organization fighting for gun control and against gun violence in the United States.
