Re: Shooting of NYPD Officers in Harlem

New York, NY – “My heart is with the family of the 22 year old police officer who was shot and killed tonight in Harlem while another is fighting for his life, the entire NYPD family, and the Harlem neighborhood where this senseless violence occurred. The city mourns the loss of one valued public servant, and prays for the recovery of the other. We have to end this epidemic of gun violence that is hurting our neighbors, undermining our city, and perpetuating cycles of trauma. The need for effective solutions to reduce violence has never been greater, and we will work with Mayor Adams, the NYPD, and all of our colleagues in government at every level – together with community members and other stakeholders – to address this crisis.”
