The incident happened on Sept. 6, in the parking lot of the Sacramento Apartments near 17th and Quaker. Police say an LP&L worker was inside when projectiles from a BB gun hit his truck, but the truck only suffered minor damage and no one was hurt.
"We can't resort to violence, but we do live in a society where that happens. And that's why we have a police department. That's why we have the judicial system. We as politicians need to stay out of it," Robertson said.
District 1 Councilman Victor Hernandez released a statement on Wednesday calling for a review of the security measures protecting city employees.
"It bothers me that not only did we see that yesterday in the LP&L meeting, but now we're seeing politicians turn it political," Robertson said.
Lana Moore is one of LP&L's harshest critics, but today she's condemning these actions and calling for real solutions. Moore is one of the administrators of the "We Own LP&L" Facebook page.
"Violence is not the answer. Solutions are the answer," Moore said.
Moore believes LP&L has plenty of problems on their plate, but shooting at a vehicle isn't going to fix them.
"Let's get proactive. Not destructive," Moore said.
