Following the tragic events that unfolded in Waukesha, Wisconsin on Sunday, Derek, J.J. and T.J. Watt have expressed their thoughts and condolences with the community and those effected.

During the town’s annual Christmas parade, a man allegedly drove an SVU through the crowd killing five individuals and injuring at least 48 others. The Watt brothers grew up in nearby Pewaukee, Wisconsin, which is just miles from Waukesha.

“Absolutely devastated,” T.J. Watt said on Instagram. “Thinking of all the families effected by tonight’s tragedy.”

“Thinking of all those affected by the senseless tragedy tonight back home in Waukesha, WI,” Derek said on Twitter. “This news truly is heartbreaking to see.”

Their brother J.J., who currently plays for the Arizona Cardinals, shared similar sentiments as his brothers, and is reportedly stepping forward to pay for the funeral costs of those killed.
