New York Attorney General Letitia James issued the following statement in response to this morning’s shooting in Sunset Park, Brooklyn:
“In the face of great challenge, New Yorkers always rise to help each other. Today was no different; New Yorkers responded with courage and compassion. This attack that injured 16 innocent New Yorkers and impacted countless more will simply not be tolerated. My office is monitoring the situation and we remain in contact with the NYPD and our other partners in law enforcement. Our entire city is grateful to the transit workers, first responders, and everyday New Yorkers who acted quickly to help those in need.
“I urge anyone with information to please contact the NYPD at 1-800-577-TIPS.”
