The actor who plays Walter on AMC’s “The Walking Dead” has been “devastaged” by the shooting in Virginia, the actor’s agent said.
In a statement released Monday, Michael De Luca, who represented “The Big Bang Theory” star Jenna Coleman, said that “the tragic events that took place in Charlottesville are something that I have been working very hard to heal.”
De Luca also said that Coleman has been in touch with his family.
“She has been devastated by what has happened,” he said.
“Her family is grieving with her at this time.
She is a wonderful person and a wonderful actress.
She’s a terrific person, and we are all deeply saddened by this terrible tragedy.””
We will be in touch, and I hope that the media can do their job and report the truth about what happened,” De Lucas said.
Coleman, who stars in “The Good Wife,” was the latest victim of the violence in Charlottesville, a city of about 200,000 people about 30 miles (48 kilometers) northwest of Washington.
A woman was killed and a woman was wounded when a car drove into a crowd of counterprotesters.
The violence erupted after white nationalists rallied in the city to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
The event was attended by neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan members and white supremacists.
The governor of Virginia declared a state of emergency and ordered police to use lethal force.
The governor called for a “day of mourning” in the state, which had seen its bloodiest day in months, and said there was a “very high probability” that the deadly attack was a hate crime.
The National Park Service said Monday that it is investigating the incident.
“At this time, we are not aware of any public safety threat to the park, its visitors or employees,” the National Park Police tweeted.
In another incident, a white supremacist drove his car into a group of counterdemonstrators, killing one person and injuring three others, CNN affiliate WAVY reported.
The car then rammed into a police car, injuring a trooper.
De Lucas’ agent did not respond to messages seeking comment.
On Monday, the Associated Press reported that the Virginia State Police and the Charlottesville police were investigating the car crash as a hate incident.
A statement from the Charlottesville Police Department said the car was driven by a white man and the car driver was a woman.
“It appears the driver of the vehicle did not know that the vehicle she was in was carrying a person in the passenger seat, according to the statement,” the AP reported.
The news agency also reported that police did not have enough evidence to charge anyone in the attack.
