PMC Shooting Statement

Our hearts are broken for the families affected by this tragedy, and we are supporting our care partners, patients and families. As the work of a hospital cannot stop, our service to patients and families continues.

Our hospital active shooter security policy, which we call Code Silver, was followed by PMC security and all care partners (employees, medical staff and volunteers). Security responded immediately and subdued the shooter.

PMC security officers Matt Dolin and Jason Rowley responded to the emergency. Security officer Dolin tackled the individual and Security Officer Rowley assisted in restraining him until the arrival of the Titusville Police Department and Brevard County Sheriff’s Department.

We appreciate and commend the immediate response of the TPD and deputies and commend officers for their professionalism. It is for this reason the hospital works on these procedures with our law enforcement and conduct frequent trainings.

We will, in this case and in any case where patient safety is involved, review all aspects of this situation.

Again, our hearts are broken for the families affected by this tragedy, and we are supporting our care partners, patients and families. We thank the community for their support.
