“The safety and security of event attendees in Sparks is a priority,” Martini said. “The individuals who engaged in the violence do not in any way reflect the majority of the event attendees.
“We appreciate the understanding of our residents and businesses throughout the last 24 hours. We want to thank our regional partners, the city of Reno and Washoe County for their support and resources during this time. We also send our appreciation to Governor Sandoval for his willingness to support our efforts.”
