"My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Michael Covert following this tragedy," Mayor Michael Pantelides said.

I will continue to work with the executive director of HACA and continue to coordinate our efforts, putting a stop to these senseless deaths that are causing havoc in our community. Our police department has once again demonstrated its commitment to finding and arresting those who are a danger to our residents, despite where they try to hide.  I commend the department for its dedication to our community and for their outstanding investigative work."

Detectives are working on additional charges for Offer since Michael Covert died.
