“I am closely monitoring developments regarding the shooting in the subway in Brooklyn. My prayers are with the victims and their loved ones, as well as the emergency personnel and law enforcement responding to this this situation. I am incredibly grateful to the courageous New Yorkers who came to the aid of their fellow passengers and to the MTA train operators whose quick thinking saved lives—their bravery and fortitude represents the best of our state. As our law enforcement officials continue to search for the suspect, I urge New Yorkers with any information to come forward to help bring this individual to justice.
