“My condolences go out to the family and friends of Zhiwen Yan, who was shot and killed on Saturday evening while doing his job. Mr. Yan was well known in Forest Hills where he worked as a delivery driver and lived in Middle Village. Mr. Yan was a shining example of the American Dream, emigrating from China and working hard to provide a better life for his family. Food delivery drivers already have a tough job, and no one should have to fear being shot at while they are working. Elected officials need to work in tandem with the NYPD and local communities in order to end gun violence on our streets, and I vow to continue in this endeavor so no family will have to go through what the Yan family is currently facing.”
