Brooklyn—State Senator Martin Malave Dilan (D-Bushwick) is hosting a Gun Buy Back Program with Kings County District Attorney Charles J. Hynes, Assemblyman Rafael Espinal and City Councilman Erik Dilan on Saturday December 17, 2011 in Cypress Hills.
Brooklyn—Yesterday more than 180 guns were taken off the streets as part of an annual gun buy back program in Cypress Hills.
Though successful, this year’s program was overshadowed by the unfortunate death of 22-year NYPD veteran, Peter Figoski. Officer Figoski was tragically killed in the line of duty earlier in the week when he responded to a robbery in progress. The handgun used in the failed robbery would have amounted to roughly one-third of the $700 in drug money the perpetrators attempted to steal.
