“This morning’s incident in the Sunset Park subway station was deeply saddening, tragic, and concerning. My heart is with all of the people who were harmed by the shooting, their families, and all New Yorkers. I am thankful to the first responders, transit workers, and fellow New Yorkers who saved lives and acted with compassion today. The person responsible for this violence will be caught and held accountable for his violent actions against our neighbors. The love and resilience amongst New Yorkers will overcome the fear and violence this horrible act sought to inflict on us.
“As a city, we will come together to make our neighborhoods safer for all, addressing violence and community safety with solutions. We also know the proliferation of guns is at the heart of so much violence across our city and nation, which will require action beyond New York City. My office will continue to monitor the situation and receive updates from the investigation.”
